Some new novels: reviewed by CRISTINA SELLORS
Ninth of thirteen Instalments
Today is the first of two conversations with men bringing up children alone. Since 1958. Peter Lloyd has fostered twelve children. He wanted deprived children to experience the same affection and security he had known as a child. To this end. he bought a large farmhouse, and gave up his job to care for the children full-time.
Peter Arnold , to whom
Doreen Forsyth will be talking next week, cares for his four-year-old son full-time-he takes him with him in his work as a motor-cycling commentator. His wife died in 1966; his search for a housekeeper was fruitless, and he feels the problem is best solved in this way.

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.
