Only Time Would Tell

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 first of six programmes Harold Williamson revisits Matthew - A Child Forever
As soon as Anne Crosby saw her newborn baby, she knew he was a mongol. She pleaded with the hospital not to keep him alive by mechanical means but they rushed him into intensive care. She wished her son would die, but they told her not to get hysterical and did everything to save his life. That was 17 years ago.
Today her son is a teenager with an infant's mind. She loves him - but, at the same time, she blames the hospital for what happened to her and her family and remains convinced he should have been allowed to die.

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.
