Cliff Michelmore visits All Saints Convent in Oxford, home of Mother Frances
Dominica, who six years ago founded Helen House, the world's first hospice for children. Mother Frances talks to Cliff about the aims of her work and the way in which it has affected her faith: 'It's meant that I've had to say more times than I can count "I don't know, I don't understand, but I do believe."' Her choice of favourite music includes Allegri's Miserere and The Snowman, which are sung for her in her own convent chapel by the CHOIR OF MAGDALEN COLLEGE directed by JOHN HARPER.

: Heart of the Matter

with Joan Bakewell
Moral issues are now making their own headlines. Behind the daily and often sensational news events lies a clash of views as to how people should respond as individuals and as a society. Joan Bakewell examines just such an issue: its social and political context and the dilemma it presents for people at the 'heart of the matter'.

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.
