Seven aspects of South-East Asian life.
3: Creeds and Politics
The pagodas of Thailand and Burma, the minarets of Java and the shabby cathedrals of Vietnam all bear witness to a rich heritage of religious belief and practice.
JOHN KEAY reflects on relations between state and church in South-East Asia. How have the Catholics and Buddhists of Vietnam fared under
Communism? Do the numerous religious minorities of the region suffer for their beliefs? With VO VAN AI,

: * Those Who Can't, Might

For years, as I did my rounds of the publishers with my novels tucked under my arm, I kept cannily mum about my academic job, my critical publications, and my filthy PhD. Wilbur Sanders , Fellow of Selwyn College, Cambridge, and novelist, reflects upon the frontier of shame that has to be crossed before citizenship of both states - Criticism and Creativity -can be obtained.

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.
