It's a Great Life: Mummy, Daddy and Dr Spock


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.
There have been many books of advice for parents published over the years, varying from the repressive to the liberal. But how important is parent education today? Toni Arthur talks to parents and teenagers about their need for information and Dorothy Baldwin, author of the book Its a Great Life, answers questions about it.

BBC Two England, 19 February 1980 11.38

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.
