A series of documentary films on the contemporary world by writers
Whose Mind Is It Anyway? by MARJORIE WALLACE Lorraine's parents are advised to lock her out of their family home in north London; Edward commits suicide in his mother's car parked in a Somerset lane; Paul shouts to the alien voices that speak to him on the New York streets. They all suffer from schizophrenia.
Marjorie Wallace , author and Sunday Times journalist, surveys the devastation left by this forgotten illness, and argues that the concentration on civil rights of the mentally ill has paradoxically left both them and their families worse off than before.
It is a situation that causes a father to say of his son: 'If only he were dead, I could cheerfully bury him and then everyone would be out of worry'. Photography

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
