For the 25th consecutive year, BBC Outside Broadcast cameras are at Aintree, covering the main races on all three days of the 1985 Seagram Grand National meeting.

Today's first two featured races are on the Mildmay course.

: The Visit: The Boy David Trilogy

with Desmond Wilcox
The award-winning film story that touched the hearts of the nation - now a trilogy, to bring it up to date.
2: Marjorie's Quest
Marjorie Jackson has loved and cared for the Boy David through more than 50 operations in the past eight years. But his future is at risk because he has no papers, no identity, no legal status in America or Britain. So Marjorie decides to travel with the film team into the Amazonian jungle to see if she can discover the proof she needs to protect the Boy David's future.
It is truly one of the most moving and incredible modem -day fairy tales -a story of love, compassion, skill and, above all, the undaunting courage of a nine-year-old boy.
(SUNDAY MIRROR)
A remarkable documentary.
(MAIL ON SUNDAY)
Desmond's documentaries have been compelling and heart-rending and the manner in which he did
The Boy David story was masterly.
(DAILY STAR)
The programme left the viewer with thewarmandmuch-neededfeeling that at heart, human beings can be very, very good. (DAILY MAIL) BBC Scotland *CEEFAX SUBTITLES

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.
