: The Visit

with Desmond Wilcox
We take visiting for granted, but some journeys are significant, even dramatic.
He's a miracle of surgical achievement and love. He's a Peruvian Indian boy, just 9 years old now but when Ian Jackson, the distinguished plastic surgeon from Scotland, first discovered him, he was an 18-month-old baby - abandoned in a paupers' hospital in Lima. The centre of his face had been destroyed by a malignant disease.
He'd been found in the Amazonian jungle Jackson agreed to attempt the nearly impossible task of reconstructing a face for the boy David. Since then David has undergone more than 50 major operations. There's another 50, at least, ahead of him. Ian Jackson is the man he calls 'Dad', and Marjorie Jackson is the only mother he's ever known. He's been spending winters in Spain because of the vulnerability to cold of newly transplanted tissue. Each summer he travels 'home', to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where Ian Jackson now works - for more operations. Desmond Wilcox went with him.

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.
