We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
'I was never frightened of walking home alone in the dark, of being raped or mugged. I knew what was waiting for me at home was infinitely worse than that.'
Cruelty to children is always shocking to read about; such a painful idea that it is unthinkable that a child in our own street, our own family, could be suffering now. Tonight the results of a special national poll prove how common this cruelty is, how many forms it takes, how it causes life-long damage.
Presented by Esther Rantzen and Sue Cook , Childwatch is in two parts. This first part looks at how children can best protect themselves from People who might try to hurt them. It also sees the launch of ChildLine - the national free helpline for children in trouble or danger. (Childwatch continues after the Nine O'clock News)

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.
