: Controversy

Young Children Need Full-Time Mothers
Do working mothers neglect their children? At present in Britain more than 200,000 children under five are left all day long without mothers.
Dr Mia Kellmer Pringle believes that unsatisfactory substitute care can seriously damage such children. Many will do badly at school and have difficulty forming loving relationships as adults.
Because of these risks, mothers with children under five should not have to go out to work: they should be paid to stay at home.
DR PRINGLE is Director of the National Children's Bureau. She argues her personal case before an invited audience at the Royal Institution, including psychologists, working mothers, employers and others who believe that a young mother's place need not be in the home.

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.
