: The Horizon Lecture

by Dr R. G. Edwards
Five years ago the first test tube baby was born: now over 300 babies have been conceived in vitro. The technique was pioneered by physiologist Robert Edwards and obstetrician Patrick Steptoe. In the early days their efforts were considered unethical, even immoral, possibly dangerous. Now their methods have worldwide clinical application in the treatment of infertile couples. Dr Edwards reflects on the changes in attitude and examines the implications of new techniques such as embryo freezing and egg donation and experimentation on the human embryo.
Directed by BRIAN JOHNSON ' Produced by DAVID PATERSON

: Good Behaviour: 1

by Molly Keane, dramatised in three parts by Hugh Leonard, starring Joanna McCallum as Aroon, Hannah Gordon as Mother, Daniel Massey as Major, Judy Cornwell as Mrs Brock
Aroon, large and unlovely daughter of an Anglo-Irish family looks back from middle age to her childhood in the south of Ireland wondering why the lives of her nearest and dearest were so perplexingly unhappy. As the many memorable characters, both comic and tragic, tumble through her mind, it becomes wickedly obvious that Aroon didn't quite understand everything that she saw. Take the incident of her governess Mrs Brock...

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.
