' ... in the lap of the downs an old farmhouse and there, waiting, are the old lags, young lags, thieves and conmen who fill it nowadays ,in the bus sit the official visitors, social workers, probation officers, magistrates and judges ..."
TAFFY: I don't know if you're at all interested. I'm growing leeks. Course. I shan't be here to eat them. At least. I hope not.
MRS AMBERLEY: But surely you must be very happy in such a wonderful place. I mean, even ordinary people would be glad of your chances.
TAFFY: Well, I'm quite an ordinary person myself, I'd say.

: Newseries God and Caesar

In the 20th century, why do some modern governments still take the Church so seriously? And has the Church betrayed Christ by accepting too comfortable a relationship with the Caesars of our time?
This new series of programmes examines those questions by looking in turn at four countries where one Church has a special position.
Trevor Beeson. Canon of Westminster Abbey, has made a special study of Church-State questions. lie begins his investigations in Catholic Italy, where the ruling Christian Democrats are now in alliance with Western Europe's largest Communist Party, and Vatican policy is criticised by hundreds of dissenting Roman Catholic groups.
In subsequent programmes, he will examine the strange compromise between the Orthodox Church and Romania's Communist Government: the responsibility of the Dutch Reformed Church as it faces South Africa's racial crisis; and the continuing links between the Church of England, the Crown and the State.

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.
