Tonight: Who'll Be Mother?: 1: Nannies
Once the 'perks' of the privileged, today they are as busy as ever. The world of Mary Poppins, Wendy and Peter Pan, and Christopher Robin may have adapted but it certainly hasn't died out.
The new legions of working mothers and career women are looking for nannies to bring up their children, and the old argument about surrendering mother's responsibility is in the air again.
Tonight Man Alive comes from the Norland Nursery Training College where school-leavers are trained for a lifetime of service-bringing up other people's children. With a group of would-be nannies the team asks whether it is a good idea to delegate the upbringing of your children.
And next week-the Prep Schools, boarding schools for 8-year-olds, which carry on where Nanny leaves off.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
