: Family Matters

Being fat used to be an outward sign of contentment and wellbeing. What has changed? Have we become a society biased against the overweight? Why are they regarded as lacking will power or self-respect, less entitled to be taken seriously? Should we encourage our families to ignore this prejudice and carry on in whatever way suits them best or should we encourage them to conform and be thin?
Joanna Kaye talks to people with personal experience of this dilemma.

: Q.E.D.

Back to the Drawing Board Emmett [text removed] has never been able to walk as well as other children. He has cerebral palsy. When doctors predicted he might soon need a wheelchair, the future looked grim. An American surgeon learned of his plight and offered to help. Within days, 12-year-old Emmett had flown to the United States where they used a special computerised system to pinpoint precisely what had gone wrong. The doctors decided massive surgery might help to put things right. But there were no guarantees. So it was back to the drawing board for Emmett and he was scared. Yet it was his big chance to live like other people - on his own two feet. Producer NICOLA GLUCKSMANN Series editor DAVID FILKIN A VATV production

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.
