: THE CATHOLIC DILEMMA

A report by Anne Owen on Roman Catholic opinion in England today
The Second Vatican Council opened five years ago this week. It has led to radical changes in Catholic liturgy, in education and in outlook.
They can'go too fast for me-they've got to keep up with the people. It's like pop songs, isn'it?
They're behaving like a demolition gang
It's a very old-fashioned reform- they keep talking about modern man' but yoti'd think they'd never met one with recordings made in Roman Catholic churches. schools, and families and comments by MAGDALEX GOFFIN , PAUL JOHNSON and AUBERON WAUGH

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.
