: The Family of Man: Children

Is it really vital for mothers to spend all their waking lives with their children? How do people in other lands go about teaching their kids to behave well? Are children happier in the Botswana bush, in the forests of New Guinea, or at boarding school in the Home Counties? Does it really do any harm for children to know all about sex?
The second programme in The Family of Man series compares the way people go about bringing up children in five different places: Colne, Lancashire; Esher, Surrey; a village in the Indian Himalayas; another in northern Botswana; and a forest settlement in the highlands of New Guinea.
Written and produced by John Percival

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.
