: The Philpott File: There's No Place Like Home

A series of film reports by Trevor Philpott

The first of two film reports on the changing face of Dr Barnardo's.
It's just a hundred years since Thomas Barnardo opened his first orphanage - the first little colony in what was to become a private empire of child care. Today there are no starving orphans waiting to be picked off the streets, and many of the conventional children's homes are being closed. Barnardo's, the biggest charity in Britain, must find new work in new places.
There's No Place Like Home is the first of two reports on the growth areas of Barnardo's work -work designed to keep natural families together, to keep children out of children's homes. It is a slow, difficult, and controversial process, carried out in the most unsavoury areas of our large cities. It is concerned as much with problem parents as with problem children and it begs the most important question in the child-care business: Is any family life better than none-regardless of the condition of home or the condition of the marriage?

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.
