: Diligently Compared and Revised

The New English Bible
An assessment by Ian McIntyre with readings by DIANA ROBSON , ROBERT EDDISON
The New English Bible was published in the spring of last year. The reviews that have appeared in this country alone already fill eight plump volumes, and sales are well past the 2-million mark.
How has it weathered the cruet comparison with the Authorised Version? Is it written in good English or merely in modern English?
What questions does it raise about the authority and interpretation of the Old Testament. and what impact is it likely to have on the life of the Church? An exceptionally lively and thought-provoking programme

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.
