John McCullagh is a Tyrone man who came to Derry a week after his Ordination in 1961. He worked in two city parishes before helping to set up the Pastoral Centre which supports the work of diocesan priests. The civil disturbance of the last 12 years has opened many wounds. He sees himself as one, of many, who helps to bind them up and, more important, tries to ensure that they won't be inflicted again.

: Horizon

Breaking in Children
Two mothers have asked for help. They can't control their very disobedient but otherwise normal children. Jonathan, aged 5. simply does nothing he's told. It's one long fight that made his mother Deirdre desperate. David, aged 8, created so much havoc by running around and continually being cheeky, that his mother. Jennifer, had him taken into care.
Both mothers asked for help from Roger McAuley , Consultant Child Psychiatrist at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children. There they get a therapy that's extremely unpopular in the UK - called behavioural therapy it's based on a system of rewards and punishments that has strong similarities to the way animals are trained.
The film follows in day by day detail the emotional, courageous and often very funny efforts that Deirdre and Jennifer make to get control over their children. Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN

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.
