Somebody We Know

Synopsis

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.
Faced with the poverty and suffering of the Third World, many people want to help, but are put off by the size of the problem. Some charity organisations now realise that we give more willingly to ' somebody we know'. One result is 'postal parents'-individual sponsorship of a Third World child. ' Every penny you give goes to support your child and your child's programme.' This is the promise that has made Action in Distress one of Britain's fastest-growing new charities.
This Everyman report by Peter France begins with two families in England who are ' postal parents ' and goes to India to discover that the reality for their children is not quite what they imagine.

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.
