Match 2
BELFAST v.
OTTAWA
Question-Master, Geoffrey Wheeler
Questions set by BOSWELL TAYLOR Director, PETER MASSEY
Executive producers: BILL WRIGHT (BBC)
SANDY STEWART (CBC)
A joint BBC-CBC production
The Emerald Isles extended a welcome to the travelling students of Transworld Top Team-one might even say a traditional welcome, with coach doors opening and shutting by means of an unseen agency. Obviously the work of the Little People. Numerous other incidents established their presence to the delight of the Canadian team. But for the match itself they were on their best behaviour, and the programme went off without a hitch.

: PEOPLE IN CONFLICT

Who am I? Where have I come from? I don't seem to fit in anywhere particularly. I know I'm not middle-class, but I don't know where I've come from if I'm working-class. I'm a person, but where do I belong?
Colin Morris talks with Ruth Finney about adoption
With them in the studio are: Miss Jane Rowe
Adviser and Tutor to the Standing Conference of Adoption Societies
Mrs. C. M. Card
Barry Webb
Directed by SIMON WADLEIGH
Produced by BRIDGET WINTER
When Lorna was five years old, she and her younger brother, Barry, were sent to an orphanage. Their mother's marriage was breaking up, there were wartime difficulties, and other emotional entanglements. Lorna and Barry were sent for adoption to a family where there was already a daughter. Lorna's attachment to her brother created such difficulties that she was returned to the orphanage and Barry was kept. From there Lorna was sent to another family with three boys, the youngest the same age as she. He used to say 'You aren't really Mummy's little girl. She bought you in the market!'
Nearly twenty years later Lorna, now Ruth Finney, talks with Colin Morris about her life as an adopted child.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
