: The Sunday Film: Conrack

starring
John Voight , Paul Winfield
Assigned as a teacher to a remote island off the coast of South Carolina, Pat Conroy finds that he has only 21 pupils. Unfortunately none of them can read or write, they hate school and have no future on the isolated outpost of civilisation. This deeply affecting movie traces the true story of how Conroy - called ' Conrack ' by the children - gradually led them to literacy and dignity. Jon Voight gives probably his finest performance as the idealistic young teacher, in a work of great warmth and humanity,

: Somebody We Know

Faced with the poverty and suffering of the Third World, many people want to help, but are put off by the size of the problem. Some charity organisations now realise that we will give more willingly to ' somebody we know '. One result is ' postal parents ' - individual sponsorship of a Third World child. ' Every penny you give goes to support your child and your child's programme.' This is the promise that has made Action in Distress one of Britain's fastest growing new charities.
This Everyman report by Peter France , first shown earlier this year, begins with two families in England who are ' postal parents ' and goes to India to discover that the reality for their children is not quite what they imagine.

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.
