: Horizon: Stretch Up Tall

'Is he all right?' A mother's first question after her baby is born. 'He's not spastic?' For the four babies in every thousand born with cerebral palsy, the outlook is no longer as bleak as it was. In the past the problem was seen as a purely medical one. Today, hope lies in combining medical treatment, with better education.

Tonight's programme looks at some of the methods of overcoming the spastic handicap and includes a visit to one of the first schools in this country where treatment and education are inseparable. Here the children rise to the challenge of learning how to be independent people.

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

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.
