: I Call It Joy: C.S. Lewis Remembered

(medium only)
"An intellect disciplined, lucid and relentlessly logical." (Charles Colson, special counsel to President Nixon - after reading "Mere Christianity")
"A private man." (PETER BIDE)
C.S. Lewis is popularly known as a writer of Christian books. He was also known by many generations of Oxford and Cambridge students as a Tutor and Lecturer in English literature and as a brilliant debater. Vernon Sproxton draws together the many strands of Lewis's life and thought, through his writings and the memories of some former pupils and old friends:
Stella Aldwinkle, Peter Bide, Austen Kark, Dr John Lawlor, Dr Eric Mascall, John Wain

: The Green Wall of Cyprus

The fighting in the summer of 1974 tore apart the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. With its two communities of Greeks and Turks, this one-time ' island of Aphrodite ', is divided not only politically and spiritually but physically as well - from the Bay of Morphou in the west, te Famagusta in the east.
In the fighting some 6,000 people were killed and many more thousands lost their homes and their livelihoods. But the recent consultations by the UN Secretary-General Dr Kurt Waldheim with Turkey, Cyprus and Greece have raised hopes for an eventual reunion of the now separated communities. At the same time Doreen Taylor has been to Cyprus to find out what it's like to live on an island that is almost two separate countries with a legacy of bitterness stretching back over 25 years.

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.
