The fourth of five dramatic journeys in people's lives with Desmond Wilcox
Jamie, a lovely 2-year-old, is the youngest of the three children of Jane and Peter [text removed]. They live what seems an ideal life in the sunshine of Lanzarote, where the [text removed] have a business. But Jamie and his family are in search of a miracle. He was born deaf and blind. His world is dark and silent. They plan a visit to a remarkable family centre in London, where miracles sometimes do happen, in the search for some way to communicate with Jamie. Jamie's story even touched the heart of the Princess of Wales, who visited him while he was at the family centre, at a time when everybody was waiting, and working, for that miracle.

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.
