: Horizon

Prisoners of Incest
The Hospital for Sick Children at Great Ormond Street in London believes that incest between parent and child is a sign that the whole family is severely disturbed. To reduce damage to the children, the hospital believes that the family must discuss their problems and vent their feelings.
This film shows the dramatic events when a family of five, 'the Carpenters', meet the father for the first time in two years, to talk about the incest that took place between father and daughter. The family is based on real cases seen by the hospital, but they are played by actors. The team who pioneered this treatment play themselves. The film reveals why disturbed parents misuse their power over their children, and how such victims can begin to overcome the effects of incest.

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.
