: Life After Death

'May I give you a warning? Guard your mind!'
Do we survive death? Will we see our loved ones again? A leading scientist cuts through the shrouds of mysticism, myth and sheer delusion to expose two basic principles. If they are true, we stand a chance of heaven. If not, then this life is all we have. Listen to the evidence, then telephone [number removed] with your reactions.

7.30 Scientist John Taylor is guided through the world of the occult by ouija-board expert George Tarleton, psychical and spiritual student Morris Frost, television's James Burke, medium Ena Twigg, psychic researcher Rosalind Heywood, and a five-year-old spirit.
Scientist Donald MacKay describes the one means by which life after death could be possible; theologian John Hick describes what form we would take; theologian Don Cupitt destroys our sentimental hopes: and minister John Stott rebuilds from the ruins.

8.30 Ring John Taylor in the studio to put your Questions direct to Rosalind Heywood of the Society for Psychical Research; John Hick, Professor of Theology at Birmingham University; and Rev John Stott of All Souls, Langham Place, London.

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.

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

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.
