In the past there has been much mystifica-ion about the nature of pagan Celtic religion. Recently it has become almost unfashionable to use this term. Even now there exists no sound reference book on Celtic religion in Britain, nor any corpus of archaeological remains.
Dr. Ross, Carnegie Research Fellow in the University of Edinburgh, has approached this controversial subject by studying both surviving cult-objects ot the pre-Christian Celts and the original texts of Irish and Welsh legends, and by correlating results.

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.
