When Trees Were Green

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.
A dramatised account by Inez Heron of a year in her life after her eight-year-old son Robin was diagnosed as having cancer. The struggle to come to terms with this situation was complicated by her ebbing faith in the Catholicism that sustained her family and friends, and by increasing doubts about the efficacy of the medical treatment given to her son. Finally she plucked up courage to get Robin transferred to a different hospital, and there doctors made a surprising new diagnosis which saved the boy's life.

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.
