This week: Baby-Minders
"If you've spent your early years in the care of a poor baby-minder and then you start school, you haven't got a cat in hell's chance" (Brian Jackson, director of the Childminding Research and Development Unit).
By law, anyone who looks after a child for more than two hours a day and gets paid for it must be registered by the local authorities. But because there aren't enough registered minders, every morning something like 100,000 babies are delivered into the care of illegal back-street minders.
Registration, however, is no longer the main issue. What is now being questioned are the long-term effects of the baby-minding system. John Pitman has talked to both legal and illegal minders and working mothers whose children are at risk because they can't afford to be too choosy about who minds their babies.

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.
