: The Marks of the Cross

Seven years ago Mrs Ethel Chapman was in hospital. She had multiple sclerosis and thought she was about to die.
In a state of depression, she prayed ' If there is a God, show me '. That night she had a vivid dream that she was being nailed to a cross. When she woke in the morning, the hospital staff found marks on her hands as if nails had been hammered through. For the rest of her life until her death a few weeks ago, Mrs Chapman retained the marks and similar ones appeared on her feet. They bled every Good Friday. She had ' stigmata 1, a rare mystical phenomenon.
Shortly before she died, she recorded an interview with Ted Harrison , in which she told about her experience, her remarkable life, and the effect the stigmata had had upon her and her faith. Producer CHRIS REES

: Talking Law

1: Sentencing
When a defendant is found guilty it is the judge alone who decides what his or her sentence should be. This gives judges enormous power over individual liberty and great influence over public policy towards crime. Yet they rarely discuss how they approach this often controversial task. In the first of six programmes, Hugo Young hears from several judges about their attitudes to sentencing. Their critics also speak. Among those taking part are LORD JUSTICE LAWTON, LORD JUSTICE SHAW, MR JUSTICE DRAKE , MR JUSTICE PAIN, barrister GEOFFREY ROBERTSON , penal reformer MARTIN WRIGHT and CHIEF CONSTABLE JOHN ALDERSON.

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.
