: Horizon

Playing with Madness Manic depression is a crippling emotional illness. It carries a high risk of suicide. It is now known that it has a strong genetic component. Those genes affect over one per cent of humanity: some 50 million people.
Is manic depression simply another genetic cross that mankind has to bear, or do these genes also convey some sort of advantage that helps to explain their survival?
Many manic depressives are creative - is it in spite of their illness - or because of it?
And what has madness to do with poetry, art, music, literature and leadership? Could it be that mental illness is, in some sense, necessary?

: Split Screen

Two partisan films about a controversial issue. Whose Choice?
With the second reading of the controversial Alton Bill just a few days away, the third series of Split Screen begins with two films made by women who radically disagree about its implications.
Women from SATFA
(Support After Termination For Abnormality) argue that David Alton 's proposal to reduce the time limit for legal abortion will deny many parents the right to choose to terminate a pregnancy because the foetus is severely handicapped.
Angela Partington presents a personal argument that the abnormal foetus should have the same right to life as any other baby. Anything else is a covert form of discrimination against the disabled.

Both films have been made with the BBC Community Programme Unit 0 INFO: page 77

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.
