Magnificent 7


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.
- Helena Bonham Carter stars in this tough, rewarding drama - inspired by Jacqui Jackson 's experiences in the documentary My Family and Autism - which charts the laughter and heartbreak of a family over 12 months. Maggi has seven children - four of whom are autistic. Curtis is terrified of red and has myriad allergies;
Christopher takes everything literally; Richard hates surprises; and Davey has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Life is never dreary at the Jackson's. My
Family and Autism is reshowing on BBC4 at 10.35pm.

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.
