: Rome: Has the Tide Turned?

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?

Don't Forget the Umbrella b.V RICHARD FAWKES
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.

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.

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.
