The Reverend N. MICKLEM , D.D.:
From the turmoil of the sixteenth censy Reformation nothing emerged of greater importance to the political and religious life of Europe than Luther's foundation of Protestant belief-that religion is an affair between the individual and his God. The mysticism, the sense of sin and the dynamic energy of this German monk coincided with and made articulate the temper of his Germany: aided by the self-regarding support of the German princes, his attack on the Roman Church in a time of weakness broke its hold over a large part of Northern Europe and established the Protestant Reformation in fact. Impossible as it is to isolate all the consequences of Luther and Lutheranism, it is certain that his influence, and that of Calvin, is largely responsible for the moral background and religious organisation from his own day to our own of the Anglo-Saxon and Protestant Teutonic nations ; in fact, for the thing called Puritanism.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
