: The Visit

with Desmond Wilcox
We take visiting for granted, but some journeys are significant, even dramatic.
2: A Mother for Malcolm
MALCOLM DUNFORD, a Yorkshire coal miner, never knew his mother.
From the age of ten months he was brought up by foster parents. He's 38 happily married with two children of his own. But he's always speculated about his mother was - she even alive or dead? Then he met a man with the same name as his - and discovered that his mother, Hilda, was alive and. well, and living in Scotland. At 72, she still remembered - every, single day - the baby boy she had been forced, by her parents and employers, to hand over, to foster parents. Malcolm and Hilda arranged to meet. But both were frightened of the moment - would there be guilt and recriminations? Would they even like each other? We travelled with Hilda - and waited with Malcolm.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
