Bitter Inheritance

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.
The Costello Family. Gorlin Syndrome is a disfiguring skin cancer that can be passed on by parents to their children. Jim Costello 's face has been ravaged by the condition for 30 years, and he has set up a support group to help others. Before the cancer denies him his vision, this Gene Stories film follows Costello as he avails himself of a pioneering new treatment. Narrated by John Hannah.

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.
