In America, the Anglican
Church has had women priests for over ten years. This week in Britain the Church of England General Synod has been debating whether it ought to recognise such ordinations. Rosemary Hartill , BBC Religious Affairs
Correspondent, has been to the USA to see how the American experience has worked. What are the implications for those who want the British Church to go the same way, and how serious is the continuing opposition to women priests? Producer and series editor JOHN NEWBURY (R) revised
Could the ordination of women priests split the Church of England? How can the Church safeguard the consciences of those who oppose such ordinations? What do church members think of the bishops' report about belief? Has it reassured those who have been disturbed by controversy about the Virgin Birth and the empty tomb of Christ? And should the Church channel many more millions of pounds into the poorer areas of England?
Rosemary Hartill reports on debates on these and other subjects during this week's meeting in York of the Church of England's governing body, the General Synod. Producer CHRIS REES

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.
