: * With a Little Hein from My Friends

by Robert Brain
By European standards the Bangwa of the West Cameroon have a very strange system of personal friendships. Dr Brain, during a year's anthropological study with the tribe, observed that for the Bangwa, a man's best friend is chosen through the accident of birth. He argues that this system with its ritual and ceremony has much to offer Western culture. ' Much has been written of human aggression - but little of altruism- the smile, not the clenched fist, is an example of instinctual behaviour.'

: * pm Hell and the Enlightenment

' It is ridiculous,' said Voltaire, to suppose that the roasting of some miserable wretch could occupy God's attention throughout eternity.'
This, says the Rev Professor John McManners , Canon of Christ Church and Regius Professor of Ecclesiastical History at Oxford, summarises the general opinion of the writers of the Enlightenment in 18th-century France. It is their ideas of Hell that in part form the subject of a book, Death and the Enlightenment, on which Professor McManners is presently engaged and which he examines in this talk,

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.
