' The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much
Talk by the Rev. Eric Jay , Ph.D.
This talk, on the Feast of the Vigil of St. James, is about an early treatise on prayer written in the third century by Origen. The treatise had not been translated into English until last year when three scholars, working independently, prepared for publication an English translation. In this talk Dr. Jay, who was one of these translators, shows how the treatise answers some of our present-day difficulties about prayer.

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
