: * From Oxford to Nairobi

Throughout the 30 years of its life, the World Council of Churches has lived at the centre of controversy. Today the Council's involvement in social and political issues ranging from racism to nuclear energy draws fire from political as well as religious bodies. Ronald Preston. Professor of Social and Pastoral Theology at the University of Manchester. examines the Council's record and suggests its challenge is to our notions of normality.

: Sounds Interesting

Tonight's look at the world of popular music touches both the present and the past as Derek Jewell plays songs from the new movie, Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, mostly composed by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. How well does the music of The Beatles from a decade ago stand up to re-interpretation today? With the Bee Gees, Peter Frampton and others as the artists involved, the programme discovers new perspectives on old songs. There's other music, too. from Van Der Graaf, Colin Blunstone, Steps and Quincy Jones.

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.
