: Good Old Sir Moses!

Compiled and presented by Carole Rosen
This is how Queen Victoria described her friend Sir Moses Montefiore, the Jewish philanthropist, the bicentary of whose birth occurs this year. Retiring a rich man at 40, he spent the next 60 years travelling the world with British Government support attempting to relieve the suffering of persecuted Jews in many countries. A big, impressive and devoutly religious man, he was the undisputed leader of British Jewry - he was Britain's first Jewish baronet - and was revered almost as a saint by many Jews abroad.
David Suchet and Miriam Margolyes read from the diaries of Moses and Judith Montefiore.
Others taking part include historians Lord Blake, Lionel Kochan, Raphael Loewe and the Bishop of Birmingham, The Rt Rev Hugh Montefiore.

Bishops' Move
Northern Protestants often express fears of the influence of the Catholic Church in the Republic of Ireland. What is that influence today? As the New Ireland Forum considers its evidence on solving the problems of a divided island. John Eidinow reports from Dublin on relations between Church and State. What is the Church's stand on key issues like divorce and how might the role of the bishops change?

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.
