Christianity and the World Order
3: A New Commandment: Human Rights
The Rev Dr Edward Norman. Dean of Peterhouse, Cambridge, argues that the consensus within the western churches that identifies Christianity and Human Rights runs into difficulty when it is applied to religious liberty in the Soviet Union, because the practice of adding religious authority to moral and political campaigns for Human Rights is both divisive and partial. In reality, Human Rights issues become the means by which Christians express their endorsement of the political values of their own societies.

Manifest Destiny Presented by John Eidinow
In spite of the recent well publicised diplomatic ' spectaculars ', the Carter administration's foreign policy remains something of an enigma. Has it really taken a harder line against the Soviet Union? What is its policy in Africa? Is there an underlying principle or are its actions merely pragmatic? Producer GREVILLE HAVENHAND

: An Actor in his Time

Sir John Gielgud. in the fourth of 11 programmes, talks to JOHN MILLIER.
4: One of Our More Promising Young Actors ' Following The Three Sisters run, Komisarjevsky asked me to play in a play called Katerina. which was bv Leonid Andreyev , a very lurid melodrama. It was a very interesting and extraordinary part, but I was very intense in H. and Agate said, " Mr Gielgud is becoming one of our more promising young actors, but he shouldn't come up the stairs into the studio like one rising from the grave ; which I'm sure was an excellent criticism. But I remember Mrs Patrick Campbell came to see it and said, " Oh you're very good, you ought always to wear a goatee ".'

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.
