It is two years since the present Pope came from Poland. Already he has created a unique worldwide reputation by his charismatic presence, his warmth of personality, and his non-stop travels. But behind the public euphoria, a struggle is going on for the heart of the Roman Catholic Church, a struggle in which many observers think the Pope himself is playing a decisive role. Are the progressive forces, released in the aftermath of the Second Vatican Council, losing their influence? Is there a genuine and effective conservative backlash?

Hugh Pearson is 50 years of age and dying. His family (wife, son. two daughters and their respective spouses) arrange a holiday in Corfu in the hope that this will give him an interest and a reason for living. He shows no interest at first but soon becomes obsessive about organising the holiday right down to the last detail. However, once on holiday his manner changes and although he knows it will be his last, he makes a great success of it.

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.
