: Pick of The Philpott File

Trevor Philpott reports on The Merry Widows of Miami
In Miami they believe widowhood should be fun.
It is a fact of modem life that most women are going to outlive their men and in Florida there is a way of life devoted to the belief that widowhood is a time of opportunity. If there have to be widows -much better that they were rich than poor, better that they were warm than cold and much better that they were merry than miserable. Here are several hundred-thousand of the late-flowering women of Miami in full blossom.

6: Timmy and the Experts
Timothy Jones is a mongol. When the strain of looking after him began to affect his parents' marriage, Mr and Mrs Jones agreed that it would be best if he were sent away from Solihull into a private residential home in the country. The move was a success. But four years later, Solihull Social Services Department had vacancies for the mentally handicapped at its own modern day-care centre, and it was costing Solihull's ratepayers £5,000 a year to keep Timmy in the country. What was more logical than to bring the boy nearer home. and ease the borough's financial burden? It was not a form of logic that convinced the Joneses. They strenuously resisted all arguments. So the battle lines were drawn up, and this film is an account of how two determined lay-people took on a whole department of experts.

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.
