A series of eight programmes
5: To Bradford, the Dales and Leeds Novelist and playwright Beryl Bainbridge makes a journey around England and Englishness. She travels to many of the places visited by J. B. Priestley 50 years earlier for his book English Journey.
She is shown around Priestley's old school, where today 97 per cent of the children are Asians, and watches some of the city's Muslims demonstrating to keep boys and girls in separate schools. She also meets Bradford's Chief Executive and learns that his wife signed a legal contract promising to do the housework. In the Dales nothing seems to have changed. Narration

7: This week Brian Hooper enters a white water canoeing competition; Francis Wilson finishes his three months of weight training, and Windsor Davies is still in his dinghy - just. 'Get one good run under your belt then go flat out on the second,' world champion Richard Fox tells Brian.
'Three months ago I sat on this machine and now I'm back to see just how much fitter I am,' says Francis as his fitness is tested again.
'Saved you from a watery grave, says Windsor to a dummy in a 'man overboard' drill.

: Horizon

A Cruel Inheritance
The Reardons' children inherited cystic fibrosis; the Johnsons' child has sickle cell disease. Fate has been doubly cruel to both sets of parents, because not only do they have the burden of sick children, but they know that they caused the disease: each parent carried a faulty gene which they passed on to their child.
New techniques of molecular biology now make it possible to diagnose some inherited diseases during pregnancy. Then the parents have the option of abortion, an option most find very difficult and many unacceptable.
Now it is possible to detect the carrier state of some diseases in parents before conception; then couples must decide whether to have children at all. This film follows the Reardons and the Johnsons through their difficult decisions. 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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
