: The Synanon Story

Twenty years ago an American ex-alcoholic called CHUCK DEDERICH founded Synanon, an idealistic commune dedicated to curing heroin addicts. Its lifestyle-a combination of strong discipline and the seductive ' Synanon game ' - proved so attractive that non-addicts began to join. By the 1970s Synanon had developed into a multi-million-dollar religious cult, and Dederich into a semi-divine leader. Under his leadership the Synanon members shaved their heads, divorced their wives, and submitted to vasectomies.
Today Dederich is on trial for conspiracy to murder. In this Everyman report Peter France tells the story of the rise and fall of Synanon, learns why its followers surrendered to Dederich, and why, like so many cults, the original dream turned to nightmare.

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.
