A broadcast version of the sermon given at the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ireland last year by the retiring Moderator, Principal J. E. Davey.
One of the strangest parables in the New Testament concerns the unscrupulous dealings of a servant who is about to lose his job. The parable concludes with the comment ' and the lord commended the unjust steward.' Principal Davey maintains that it was Jesus who commended him, and explains why.

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
