A series of four talks
2-Karl Heim by the Rev. W. A. Whitehouse Dean of the Faculty of Theology and Reader in Theology in the University of Durham
Among Continental theologians Karl Heim is one of the few who have shown considerable interest in the relation between science and theology. In the last twenty years he has produced six volumes in an attempt to work out an overall picture of reality — world picture of belief, as he calls it — to set against the world picture of disbelief from which most people take their bearings in a scientific age. Mr. Whitehouse, who has translated one of the volumes into English, talks about Karl Heim 's contribution and, in particular, the theory of multiple spaces and the category of polarity.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
