Talk by the Rev.
G. R. Beasley-Murray , Ph.D.
Tutor at
Spurgeon's College, London
The attempt made by Rudolf Bultmann to interpret the New Testament so that it would be understood by modern man led to the development of demythologising. This process has been strongly criticised for its sceptical attitude to the Gospels, its failure to recognise the enduring power of myth, and its lack of concern for historical truth.
Dr. Beasley-Murray shares in the opposition to Bultmann but recognises considerable contributions to New Testament study in his work. In this talk, while still disagreeing with Dr. Bultmann, he points out the positive contributions.

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.
