Christmas is a time of homecoming, of family reunion. But many have no family, no home. The wind-blasted doorway is their refuge, a bottle of cheap booze their only warmth.
Where do they turn? Pilsdon, a small community in an Elizabethan manor in rural Dorset, is the refuge many head for.
Bob had two heart attacks wandering on the streets; Peter, a criminal, suffered appalling violence; Seamus drank meths; Henry was given five years to live. They all made it as far as Pilsdon. Here they find sanctuary for a while.

First in the series of indie-orientated pop music programmes. More rough than ready, FSd #1 cooks up an ugly Scottish broth with the Blood Uncles and the Hook 'n' Pull Gang, an interview with a record company A and R man and lots of other good things and bad attitudes. But be careful! FSd is the only pop programme that can inflict physical pain on its audience. Sound JOHN GARDNER Lighting RON IRVINE

An exhibition of 60 years of the New Yorker opens today at the Victoria and Albert
Museum, London - a celebration of the distinctive art and graphic style of America's foremost literary magazine.
For six decades it has been the proving ground for writers like John Updike and J. D. Salinger and critics such as Pauline Kael. But last year the New Yorker's august tradition came under threat - from a new owner who appointed a new editor, only the third man to hold this post. Review went to
Manhattan to talk to some of the New Yorker's most distinguished contributors - John Updike , Ved Mehta , Jay McInerney and cartoonist Ed Koren about the magazine's unique place in American culture.

AU the King's Men
During the summer of 1943, the SOE'S largest network in occupied France, collapsed and more than 400 of the French Resistance were arrested. At the centre of this disaster stood the figure of Henri Dericourt , one of SOE's most trusted agents.
However, Dericourt had also been working for German Intelligence.
Following the publication of a new book (All The King's Men by Robert Marshall ), which examines the events surrounding the collapse of SOE's network, Timewatch have updated this programme, originally transmitted in 1986. Recent evidence confirms that the catastrophe in wartime France was really the result of an extraordinary British espionage operation. Narrated by John Woodvine Editor ROY DAVIES

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.
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.
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.
