Jesus of Nazareth is the most widely revered figure in human history yet surprising little is known about him. For example, although his
'birthday' has recently been celebrated by his one-and-a-half billion followers, no one can conclusively prove the year of his birth, let alone the date.
Even the most basic questions about his identity remain a matter of fierce dispute: was he, as the Church claims, Son of God? Or, as others argue, a blasphemer? Did the first
Christians see him as king of kings or suffering servant?
David Winter invites Canon Michael Green. Hubert Richards , Sister Cecily Boulding , op. and Geza Vermes to attempt an answer to the question. 'Who was Jesus?'

Park Corner soapbox is taken up by Juliet Alexander , whose birthplace is a Caribbean state as far from Jamaica as Britain is from Russia, where over half the people are of South Asian descent, where cities of canals and bicycles were founded by the Dutch, and which isn't even an island.

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.
