Piano: Denis Matthews


by the Rt. Rev. Leslie Brown ,
Bishop of Uganda
The Syrian Christians of India are not Syrians but Malayali members of the Jacobite Syrian Church. The Portuguese in the sixteenth century called them the Christians of St. Thomas and that name has stuck. It refers to the tradition of their origin: they believe that St. Thomas the apostle came to Malabar, converted a number of Brahmin families, and founded seven churches. The descendants of these converts, according to tradition, have formed a Christian community which for centuries has had no link with the Western Church.
Leslie Brown recorded this talk after leaving India, where he had served for many years as a missionary, prior to his appointment as Bishop of Uganda.

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.
