: Rugby Special: 1871-1971: RFU Centenary Year series: The International Championship: Scotland v Wales

After their scintillating victory over England at Cardiff Arms Park it would seem that the current Welsh side possess the ability and talent to beat any team in the world; but the Scots have shown in their most recent matches that the lessons of modern Rugby thinking are not unknown 'north of the Border.'

: The Philpott File: The Hardest to Love

The second of two film reports by Trevor Philpott on the changing face of Dr Barnardo's.

Dr Barnardo's is known for its nationwide network of orphanages. But the image is out of date. Today unwanted babies are not abandoned on doorsteps: healthy white babies are quickly snapped up by eager foster-parents. The ones left in Barnardo's care are largely those handicapped in body or mind or spirit, children who are difficult to look upon and difficult to live with, the children who are 'The Hardest to Love.'
This report is about such children and the people who dedicate their lives to giving even the most hopeless and unlovable some place where they can feel safe, that they can call home.


Reporter/Producer: Trevor Philpott

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.
