: The Visit

with Desmond Wilcox. The Boy David
The first of two programmes The Years of Courage
He is the little Campa Indian boy who captured the hearts of the nation when his story was told on TV five years ago. He also captured the hearts of the surgeon who rebuilt his face and the surgeon's wife, Marjorie, who became his mother and helped him build a new life in America. David was found by Ian Jackson , the distinguished plastic surgeon from Scotland, virtually abandoned in a hospital in Lima, Peru. The centre of his face had been destroyed by disease. Ian began, first in Scotland then in the Mayo Clinic Rochester, Minnesota, the near impossible task of using bits of David's own body to reconstruct a face.
Marjorie began a search for David's roots, which meant trekking through the Amazonian jungle and a desperate fight to adopt the boy they wanted to protect and had learned to love.
This week The Visit reminds you how the story began.

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.
