* Into All the World '
A programme on the Church Army yesterday and today
The Church Army was officially founded in 1882 by the late Prebendary Wilson Carlile. Although it is committed to welfare work of every kind, evangelism has always been its chief concern; and today the Church Army's uniformed officers, both men and women, carry on that work in churches, halls, homes, and in the open air. The grey uniform is also to, be seen in various countries of the Commonwealth and in the United States.

England was only one of the countries to be settled or conquered by the Normans. Largely as professional soldiers, they penetrated southern Italy and the island of Sicily, made their way to Spain, served in the forces of the Byzantine Empire, and founded principalities in Asia Minor.
In this programme, the last of the series, two historians describe the part played by the Normans in the Mediterranean, and show how - in contrast with the permanence of their contribution to English history - the Normans in Europe left little behind them.
