This week: Children at Risk: 2: The Guardians
The people most concerned with Child Care, the officers of the Welfare State, the guardians of institutions and homes, the doctors, the psychiatrists, and the politicians, are often their- own most severe critics. The protection of children from both circumstances and inadequacy is one of the chief concerns of those who operate the Welfare State. Changes are taking place. They are much needed. Will they do the job?
Tonight we look at some of the dos and don'ts of buying and keeping a pony as a pet.
A vet answers questions about the knowledge and facilities you need, and we look at a new breed to this country, the Haflinger, and at every townsman's idea of a pony, the Shetland.
The first play in a trilogy by Ian Curteis
starring Mike Pratt as Turk Godfray and Godfrey Quigley as Old 'Un Williams.
The first of three plays that follow Turk Godfray from his home on Romney Marsh through war into maturity - it's about the death of one way of life and the rebirth of another.
(A playwright's trip that has even the actors wondering: pages 6, 7)
Old 'Un Williams:
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.
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.
