: In God We Trust

In 1976 Jimmy Carter took office in the White House amidst enthusiastic cries about his plain Southern honesty and his open Christianity. To disillusioned Americans, tired of dogged leadership and scandal in high places, his boyish naivety had political charm. Now three years on, those qualities have been much tested on issues of such international significance as the Middle East Agreement, SALT 11, Human Rights, and Southern Africa. But Jimmy Carter is only the tip of the ice-berg of American Evangelical Christianity. What influence have the ' born again ' had on the White House? Has early optimism now soured to disillusionment? Does a direct Bible-based - some would say simplistic - faith carry enough weight to affect the way the United States leads the West and influences the world?

Down with Skool! Presented by Mary Goldring
The ground-swell of discontent with Britain's schools is building up to formidable proportions. They are being criticised for falling standards, in-stilling the wrong sort of objectives, and of being just plain out of touch. How far is this discontent Justified? Who is to blame? What should be done about it?

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.
