Broken Images
I can see my face quite happily, I can see my lips moving as I speak to you.... obviously I can see my own glasses and my eyes behind them ... but if you were to ask me who it is, 1 still wouldn't know.'
John cannot recognise himself in a mirror, or his wife. He is lost a few yards from his own home. Yet he is not blind: he just can't make sense of what he sees. And ironically his misfortune tells us a great deal about normal perception.
John's condition is rare, but not quite unique. Larry, from Florida, is similar. When they meet in London will they be able to share their handicap? Narrator Alexander John Film editor ROBERT BROWN Written and produced by HILARY LAWSON

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.
