: The Sunday Debate

Children and Discipline: 2
Should children be much more strictly disciplined?
Presented by Robin Day
Dr Mia Kellmer Pringle , Director of the National Children's Bureau and Dr Jack Dominian , Consultant Psychiatrist argue that stricter discipline and corporal punishment offer no solution to the problems of disorder and violence among our children. It is the sickness of our society that is to blame: children need all the love and understanding we can give them to cope with the pressures of modern life. They are challenged by Dr Rhodes Boyson , MP and Mrs Rachel Nugee , jp, of the Mothers' Union who put the case for stricter discipline last week.

: Kafka's Castle

with John Wood as FRANZ KAFKA and his hero ' K '
This year is the 50th anniversary of the death of the Czech writer Franz Kafka , and Omnibus tonight presents an adaptation of scenes from his book The Castle. Since his death Kafka has become a cult figure - his world has seemed prophetic: the suffocation of city life, red-tape, bureaucracy, the secret police, events which twist from logic into nightmare. The Castle is the story of a search -for a weird and elusive authority in a village lost in the snow.
Tonight's film tries to solve its mystery - through hints, no more than hints (no final solution is certain) from the book itself and the life of the man who wrote it.

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.
