: The Family Call: on Men

Following on from The Family Show in January, Nick Ross now draws on his phone-in expertise, inviting viewers to share in a live debate on the changing nature of family life in Britain in this
International Year of the Family.
"We're experimenting with how a phone-in can work on TV," says Ross, who presents Call Nick Ross on Radio 4. "We're exploiting the available technology, using high-capacity telephone lines that can carry video images as well as sound."
Pre-selected callers will have tiny cameras installed in their homes; others will come straight through to the studio by conventional phone lines.
Men, whose role in the family has been transformed by the increasing numbers of women going outto work, are under the spotlight. What should be their role in the family? Isn't it time they became equal partners and parents at home? The phone lines will be open from 7.00pm, so make your contribution on 081-8118181. Producer Richard Woolfe DIRECTORY: for information on organisations helpingfamilies, send a standard envelope stamped with 38p to: Directory, PO Box 9494, London W 1 2 7ZZ.

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.
