: The Visit: Sperm-Bank Baby

The last of five dramatic journeys in people's lives with Desmond Wilcox.
Afton Blake , an attractive and successful psychologist, is also an unmarried mother - bringing up Doron, her blond 2-year-old son, in a wealthy suburb of Los Angeles. Doron will never meet his father, and will never know his name. His father is a genius, and a sperm-bank donor, known only as Donor 28 Red. Now Afton wants another baby by the same donor from the sperm bank, which specialises solely in high IQ fathers, it's even known as the Nobel Sperm Bank. She knows her decision has put her in the forefront of controversy. So did Donor 28 when he was tracked down and interviewed. Research JAN RIDDELL

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.
