: Man Alive

investigates, discovers, questions
This week: Mother's Ruin
Too much alcohol doesn't do anyone any good. But women come off even worse than men: they get drunk on less, they are more likely to contract liver disease, they can damage an unborn child -with serious risks for its future mental development.
Yet women in Britain now drink more than ever before and start earlier. Supermarkets sell drink along with breakfast cereal, and women's magazines are saturated with advertisements which some claim glamorise alcohol. Certainly, sales have doubled in less than ten years ...
Man Alive meets women with drinking problems, and asks doctors and researchers if more should be done to warn people of the risks they run.

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.
