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.

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.
