The twenty years' conflict between William Law the mystic and John Wesley : studied from their works and correspondence by T. 0. Beacheroft
Production by Douglas Cleverdon with Martin Lewis. Trevor Martin
Peter Neil , Olaf Pooley
' I was once a kind of oracle of Mr. Wesley,' wrote William Law. John Wesley's earliest biographers say that
Law was ' a great forerunner of the revival that followed and did more to prompt it than the rest of the nation taken collectively.' Yet the quarrel which distressed their friends was perhaps to be expected-a quarrel symbolised in the story of Martha and Mary.

Talk by the Rev. H. H. Rowley
Professor of Semitic Languages and Literature
In the University of Manchester
The recent opening by Professor Wright Baker of the copper scrolls and the discovery that the leather scroll supposed to be the lost Book of Lamech was really an Aramaic work based on Genesis, has renewed interest in the scrolls discovered beside the Dead Sea in 1947. In this talk Professor Rowley discusses the most recent scholarly work on the subject, written by Professor Millar Burrows and published in America.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
