with Desmond Wilcox The Lost Twin
Earlier this century unwanted twins used to be sent to different homes for adoption or fostering. They frequently grew up never even knowing that they were twins. Lilian Wales, a widow, has just been reunited, at the age of 62, with the twin Betty she never knew she had. All her life she felt that something was missing - and couldn't tell quite what it was. All her life she yearned for a complete and happy family. Now she feels she has one. This film retraces the difficult lives of two courageous women and is present at their reunion with their families.

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.
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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
