A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives.

This week: People in Chains
The problem of what to do with dependent relatives has always concerned our society. But in the end it is with the individual - a member of the family - that the responsibility lies. There is probably no harder test of family loyalty than when one person sacrifices his or her life to look after another. The people clamped together by family loyalties are often disparate people-relations whose relationship is one of blood alone; people who have had to choose between sending dependants into a home and being free; or looking after them and being chained.

: Mind and Motive: 5: Prejudice and Persecution

A series of six programmes presented by The Director of the Department of Psychological Medicine, Guy's Hospital.

And all these new people they got together, they'd light bonfires when the wind was blowing towards the house, they'd fill up the dustbins, and they were always on the phone when I wanted to use it... You could tell they didn't like me
Those are the words of a man mentally ill, suffering from paranoia. But how different are such delusions from many prejudices?
With Dipak Nandy.

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.
