: MAN ALIVE

Achievement ... Happiness.... Tragedy ... Stress ...
A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives
Reporters: Jim Douglas Henry Jeremy James , John Percival Desmond Wilcox
Harold Williamson
This week:
THE UNMARRIED MOTHERS
Every year their numbers increase. Report after report has been produced on the problem created by nearly 70,000 illegitimate births annually. And yet the unmarried mother is, today, as badly off as she has ever been.
Much of the care of unmarried mothers and their children is left to voluntary organisations-in particular the National Council for the Unmarried Mother and her Child. At the end of last year the N.C.U.M.C. called a press conference-because it was going bankrupt. If it goes out of business society will have to decide what responsibility it owes to the unmarried women who each year have illegitimate babies.
Is it right that such social re- . sponsibility should have to be left in the hands of voluntary organisations? Do we profess liberalism on the one hand and stigmatise the unmarried mother on the other? Now both Parliament and society may have to decide.
Director, David FILKIN

: PARSONS IN THE PLAGUE

The Plague of 1665 silenced London. The only traffic was the death-cart, the only street cry 'Bring out your dead.' A quarter of the population fled, a quarter died.
Of the few who stayed in town all through the disaster, two were parsons. They wrote down their experiences, and this film is made from their records. with John Carson as The Rev. Symon Patrick
Trevor Martin as The Rev. Thomas Vincent
Narrator, MAGNUS MAGNUSSON
Written and produced by JOHN ELPHINSTONE-FYFFE

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.
