Christianity and the World
Order. 2: Ministers of Change The Rev Dr Edward Norman , Dean of Peterhouse, Cambridge, argues that in recent years there has been a large measure of Christian sympathy for Marxist movements seeking the replacement of the existing order in areas of South-East Asia, Southern Africa and Latin America. The preparedness of Christian opinion to follow the diagnosis of world issues propagated by left-wing political agencies was amply illustrated by the response to the Chilean coup in 1973. In his view it is the World Council of Churches that most specifically engages in the detailed application of contemporary political doctrines, with very questionable results.

What is News?
Who should decide the contents of a newspaper or a radio bulletin: the State or the journalist? Should the definition of news value be changed according to the circumstances and attitudes of the people to whom information is addressed? These questions are at the heart of the growing debate about the ' relevance ' of the mass media to the Third World. They form the basis of a UNESCO report published this month. And they are discussed by a panel of contributors In the developed and developing world in this international discussion programme chaired by John Tusa.

3: Those Great Creatures
'Agate said that Mrs Patrick Campbell as Mrs Alving in Ghosts was like " the Lord Mayor's coach with nothing in it ". In the great scene when I have to tell her that I've got brain disease, she'd taught me most carefully how to say this line: " You must speak with a channel-steamer voice, Pinero showed me how to do it." And as I was saying it on the first performance, she turned round with her back to the audience and said: " Oh, I'm so hungry " - which wasn't exactly helpful:'

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.
