A series of eight broadcasts introduced by DR. ANNE Ross

A far-flung people, the Celts encountered a variety of cultural influences. There is nevertheless a sufficient unity in their cult practices and imagery to allow us to speak of pagan Celtic religion, and to detect an underlying universality in their beliefs.
Produced by Adrian Johnson

A play for radio translated from the French by PETER MEYER with Ernest Milton and Frances Cuka
Roland Dubillard is an actor and dramatist, the author of two successful stage plays, Naive Hirondelle and La Maison d'Os. In Le Pere, which was written specially for broadcasting, he creates a convincing study of old age in a deceptively simple story leading to an unexpected climax.

: AUTHORITY AND FREEDOM IN THE CHURCH

by DONALD MACKINNON
Norris-Hulse Professor of Divinity in the University of Cambridge
The recent decision of the theologian Charles Davis to leave the Roman Catholic Church has attracted a good deal of attention. This event has prompted Professor MacKinnon to reflect on some of the problems that arise when the authority vested in the Church as an institution is brought to bear on the individual's exercise of freedom in thought and action.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
