: Joey

SFTA Award: Best Specialised Programme for 1974
Dramatised by Brian Gibson and Elaine Morgan
This is a unique and remarkable story first shown in Horizon on BBC2 - the life of Joey Deacon. He was born in 1920 with brain damage. He grew up severely spastic, unable to walk or talk.
After 13 years in hospital Joey met another spastic patient, Ernie Roberts, who had a remarkable skill. He could understand Joey.
Joey's story could now be told: he dictated his memories to Ernie, who, in turn, dictated them to Michael, a third patient. Tom, a fourth member of the group, typed out the story. Every day the group produced three lines and after almost one-and-a-half years' work the book, Tongue-Tied, was finished. This programme reconstructs the story of that book, from Joey's birth to the present day.

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.

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

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.
