: My Children, My Children

A series of three documentary programmes looking at recent research into life before birth, and its consequences.
1: The Genetic Chance
Prince Alexei, heir to the Russian throne, suffered from an incurable disease of the blood, haemophilia. By an unlucky chance he inherited the disease, as did some other male members of the family, from his great-grandmother Queen Victoria. Today it is possible to determine the sex of a child before birth and offer parents an abortion of a male foetus. But the choice is not an easy one. A woman, desperate to avoid giving birth to a child suffering from a cruel disease, knows that there is an evens chance of her son being normal. Would the Royal Family as we know it exist at all if selective abortion had been available in Victorian times? Robert Reid examines the dilemma which the quirk of genetic chance posed for three generations of a London family.
Research assistant DAVID WOODNUTT Film editor ANGUS NEWTON Producer ROBERT REID
Book (same title), £5.00, from bookshops early next year. The first of three articles linked to this programme appears in The Listener this week. Preview: page 19

: Signs of Trouble

Aspects of Delinquency
A series of ten programmes Introduced by LAURIE TAYLOR
Professor of Sociology,
University of York.
8: ' I've got my Borstal ... '
' The " get tough with delinquents " school insist that Detention Centres and Borstals are places for punishment, antidotes to all the soft talk about care and protection and treating the offender in the community. But what goes on in the 18 Detention Centres and 23 Borstals in Britain? Are they really juvenile prisons - warehouses for offenders like their adult equivalents? Or are they genuinely engaged in reform, treatment, rehabilitation? And how successful are they at stopping delinquency? ...'
Producer GORDON CROTON

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.
