DENIS TUOHY , DESMOND WILCOX HAROLD WILLIAMSON This week:
The Act of Abortion
The Abortion Act of 1967 is to be reviewed - when a committee of open-minded citizens can be formed. The trouble is that most people already have their opinions : they don'want to be confused by the facts. But the fact is that well-intentioned legislation has resulted in a few mind-bending illogicalities. Some private abortionists are reputed to be coining E10,000 a year, while the National Health Service, overburdened with serious cases awaiting treatment, is sometimes reluctant to terminate pregnancies.
This week, on film and m the studio, Man Alive examines the difficulties which surround the women who want and those who perform the act of abortion.
Director TERENCE O'REILLY
Editors DESMOND WILCOX , BILL MORTON

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.

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.
