But have the Goods become a little smug and what do the neighbours think?

The Two Worlds of Joseph Race with Christian Rodska and Elizabeth Proud
'In England I began 1873 by kissing four young ladies. Now, in very different case, I begin my first whole year in the country of my choice.'
The country Joseph Race had chosen was China. At the age of 12, working from 5.30 in the morning till late at night at a lead mine in Weardale, County
Durham, he was one day in chapel when his heart was 'strangely warmed' by the ringing words of the preacher. Then and there he decided to become a Methodist minister himself. The musician, writer and broadcaster Steve Race tells the dramatic story of his grandfather, based on his diaries and letters.

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.
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.
