: Dear Mother

We all have an image of the ideal mother-always available to her children, always capable in her home. Today fewer and fewer women are able, or even want, to live up to this ideal. Dear Mother explores some of the compromises women work out for themselves and how their children react.
When a career woman has to work late at the office, what might her nine-year-old daughter get up to? When you are helping to run a busy pub 18 hours a day, what is the best thing for your son, aged nine? If you are bringing up three sons without their father and trying to earn a living, how do you cope? And if your children are taken from you and put in a home through no fault of your own, what then?
Four women from vastly different walks of life who tackle the real-life problems of being a mother talk tO HAROLD WILLIAMSON.

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.
