Harold Williamson Revisits Matthew -A Child Forever
As soon as Anne Crosby saw her newborn baby, she knew he was a mongol. She pleaded with the hospital not to keep him alive, but they did everything to save his life. In 1983 her son was a teenager with an infant's mind. And she loved him. But at the same time she blamed the hospital for what happened to her and remained convinced he should have been allowed to die. Film editor JOHN NASH

: Songs of Praise

from Mortlake
The University Boat Race and the No 9 bus end at Mortlake, where there's a large brewery. Mortlake also has a proud history. This summer the Mortlake Festival has been reminding this London village of its history and, of course, providing the fun of the fair. Sally Magnusson joins the celebrations. Among the people she meets is Ken Axton, who has worked at the Mortlake brewery for most of his life. Christians from the area come together in the festival big top to sing their Songs of Praise.
Shall we gather at the river? Jesu, lover of my soul (Aberystwyth); Sing, my tongue (Pange Lingua); He who would valiant be (Monks Gate); We're walking in His care (The Snowman's Hymn); Dear Lord and Father of mankind (Repton): O Praise the Lord by the riverside (Mortlake); God's spirit is in my heart

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.
