Talk by Christmas Humphreys President of the Buddhist Society,
The book of this title by Shinso Hana yama tells of his three years with the condemned Japanese war criminals. The majority of the war criminals were born as Buddhists and the author was appointed to minister to them. For three years he visited Sumo prison daily. He held Buddhist services there and gave spiritual guidance, and witnessed the change wrought by religion on these men as they approached their death.
Christmas Humphreys was in Japan at the time of the trials.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
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.
