THE BROKEN BRIDGE
Irene Kassorla is an American therapist who for the past two years has worked in this country with mentally ill children, who have apparently no communication with the outside world-children whose parents had almost given up hope of making contact with them. Gradually under her care they begin to react; to produce words that are relevant, to frame sentences.
This film, made during actual therapy sessions over a period of six months, shows the remarkable effects of her simple method: how she has given new hope to troubled parents and restored, at least partly, the bridge of communication to three children.
Narrator, Christopher Chataway
Producer, R. W. REID
The story of Irene Kassorla 's experiment with a schizophrenic. ' Mr. Blake.' first broadcast in the Third Programme in March, recently won the Italian Press Association award for radio documentaries.

: THE MONEY PROGRAMME

Looking at the news and the men behind the news in the world of money including
CHASING THE HARE
Introduced by Brian Widlake , Graham Turner with William Davis , John Tusa
Associate producer, Udi Eichler Produced by MICHAEL BUNCE
Greyhound racing is the second most popular spectator sport in Britain today. But every year fewer and fewer people go dog racing. People in the business blame this decline on TV, bingo, and betting shops. Owners with dogs that win the Classic races can expect to get up to £ 10,000 for their prize dogs. Some of those who keep dogs in their back garden or at the local stadium, or those who just have an occasional flutter, stand to lose money. Is there money in greyhound racing? Or is this British sport slowly going to the dogs?

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.
