On 14 July 1833 The Rev John Keble preached the Assize sermon from the pulpit of the University Church of St Mary the Virgin in Oxford. His theme was 'National Apostasy'. This event marked the beginnings of the Oxford Movement, one of the most powerful renewal movements in the Church of England. Today, as part of the 150th anniversary celebrations of Keble's sermon, another controversial cleric preaches from the same pulpit on the same theme. Bishop Trevor Huddleston, recently retired as Archbishop of the Indian Ocean and a former Bishop of Stepney, preaches a sermon that is certain to disturb, challenge and inspire.
The scene in St Mary's is set by ROBERT FOXCROFT. Producer JOHN NEWBuRY

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.
