Introduction
Elijah prophesies a famine in Israel, as a punishment for Ahab's idolatry and Baalworship
Overture
Part 1
The famine-stricken people are warned by Obadiah to return to God, and forsake their idols. Elijah is sent by the Lord to Cherith, where he is fed by ravens, and, later on, when the brook is dried up, to Zarephath, where he brings a widow's son to life again, and the woman believes the word of the Lord. After three years of famine, Elijah is sent to reprove Ahab, and, having confounded the idolatrous priests and convinced the people that the Lord Jehovah, whose fire descends from heaven, is God alone, bids them stay all the prophets of Baal. Then Elijah prays for rain, and God answers his prayer and laves the thirsty land.
Part 2
Elijah threatened by Jezebel, who ha3 heard of the slaughter of the prophets, flees for his life to Beersheba. Here, weary of his existence, he prays that he may die, but receives comfort from an angel, who bids him journey to Mount Horeb, where God appears to him, speaking in the still small voice. Strengthened and armed with the Lord's commands, he departs to an lint Elisha as prophet, and to denounce Ahab and Jezebel, and, about ten years later, he is taken up by a fiery chariot into heaven.

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.
