: Horizon

China's Child
Imagine a city the size of Liverpool where nobody has had a second child for three years; where nobody gets pregnant without official permission; where a second baby has no legal identity and can lose you your job, and where neighbours and workmates are officially encouraged to report any unauthorised pregnancy.
Changzhou, an industrial town near Shanghai, is such a place. It's one of the most successful examples of China's policy, announced in 1980, that ' because of the coming over-population crisis, each couple will henceforth only be allowed a single child '.
How do the Chinese enforce such a severe policy? How do they present it to the people as acceptable, even desirable? And what happens when, despite pressures, a woman becomes pregnant for the second time?
This film traces the personal and detailed events in Changzhou during two weeks last March, following the factory birth control workers, the ' Granny Police' and the local families, as they struggle to apply - or in some cases, to get round - the ' one child policy'. Narrated by PAUL VAUGHAN

: Frank Delaney

ALDOUS HUXLEY wrote: That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that history has to teach.
Frank Delaney talks to three historians who give very different lessons. They are Raymond Wil liams, political and cultural analyst and novelist, whose ideas have influenced two generations since the publication of Culture and Society 1780-1950; Christopher Andrew , modern historian and expert on British Intelligence and French Imperialism; and John Keegan , whose highly acclaimed The Face of Battle altered the traditional approach to military history.

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.
