: Only Time Would Tell

The first of six programmes Harold Williamson revisits Matthew - A Child Forever
As soon as Anne Crosby saw her newborn baby, she knew he was a mongol. She pleaded with the hospital not to keep him alive by mechanical means but they rushed him into intensive care. She wished her son would die, but they told her not to get hysterical and did everything to save his life. That was 17 years ago.
Today her son is a teenager with an infant's mind. She loves him - but, at the same time, she blames the hospital for what happened to her and her family and remains convinced he should have been allowed to die.

: Duke Ellington

... and his Famous Orchestra A film portrait of Edward Kennedy Ellington 1899-1974
For half a century Duke Ellington led the most celebrated orchestra in the world, and kept it stocked with virtuosi in every section-Johnny Hodges , Harry Carney , Cootie Williams , Paul Gonsalves , Lawrence Brown.
Among his 5,000 compositions are all-time hits like 'Mood indigo', ' Sophisticated lady ', Solitude' and ' Satin doll' as well as major suites and tone poems. Yet behind the sophisticated front the man himself was an enigma, and during his lifetime he managed to resist close scrutiny of his complex personality. ' Too much talk,' he once said, stinks up the place '. Russell Davies presents this portrait of Duke Ellington filmed in New York. Among those taking part are his sister Ruth, his son
Mercer Ellington , Cootie Williams , Dizzy Gillespie , Cab Calloway , Clark Terry , Louis Bellson , Jimmy Hamilton , Mel Torme and Joe Williams.

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.
