Things were changing at Valley End and all because of Arnold Massiter. Changing in a way that Joe didn'like. But Mrs Massiter reassured him, and with the prospect of her husband leaving on a business trip to the Bahamas in August and Aunt Ethel coming to talk over Joe's future, his hopes began to rise again. But for how long?

The recent decision to close down a number of Anglican theological colleges has highlighted the continuing decrease in the number of men being ordained in the Church of England. This is but one of the symptoms of an apparently general decline in the strength and authority of the Church in what is coming to be known as the post-Christian era.
On this Good Friday, the most solemn day in the Christian year, Alan Gibson examines the current situation in the Church of England and the implications for its future in the light of a variety of views held by some of its bishops, clergy and laity.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
