: Thirty-Minute Theatre: First Confession

by Nicholas Bethell
from a short story by Frank O'Connor
[Starring] Jack Wild as Jackie, Eddie Byrne as The Priest, Pippy Duncalfe as Nora,
Sheila Manahan as Gran

Jackie has some terrible sins to admit to at his very first confession including a plan to murder his grandmother and cut her body up into little pieces. Gran gleefully believes his penance will be very severe indeed once the priest hears. But when Jackie returns home it's not sackcloth and ashes he wears - but a halo.

(Jack Wild, who plays the part of Jackie, recently scored a great success as the Artful Dodger in the film version of Lionel Bart's musical "Oliver!")

: Horizon: Report on V.D.

Man and science today

Venereal diseases - or sexually transmitted diseases as doctors now call them - are infecting more and more people all over the world. In Britain they may soon be commoner than measles.
Tonight's programme explains which are the main sexual diseases. It shows what causes them; what they do to people; how they can be recognised and treated; and what can be done to teach young people, who are most at risk, how to avoid infection or at least to know when they are infected.
The "sexual revolution" is regarded as a major cause of the rise in sexual disease, and most experts believe the rise will continue unless there is a change in human behaviour. Otherwise hope must lie in the results of research - but very little is being done.

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.
