: Who Cares?

A series of six programmes presented by Jonathan Miller 1: Out of Sight - Out of Mind'It is a lonely life - you do feel very isolated,' says Gillian Rowell, who looks after her
32-year-old disabled daughter at home. Meanwhile, just up the road, her father Jack Stanley is caring for his wife who has Alzheimer's disease. Gillian and Jack are among the six million people in Britain who look after relatives or friends needing long-term care. Like most carers, they want to care, but they need help in order to go on coping.
So who cares for the carers? This programme shows how carers can get the information and support that's theirs by right. Film editor PETER RINGSTED Producer TONY MATTHEWS
'Caring at Home ' by Nancy Kohner is available free to carers. Send a large sae with 50p stamp to

: Different Drummer

The last programme in the present series.
Delores Her red lush lips deliver the intense gutteral warbling of scat; her body is a sequinned shimmer quivering in leopard-skin pants, a beehive hairdo surmounts a face of night-clubbed beauty.
Amazing Delores, singer and friend of heavenly bodies;
'standing in front of my car was an angel and he was some big dude.'

: Nature Special

A hard look at the natural world presented by Michael Buerk.
Return to Chernobyl
'We've become pariahs, plate-carriers; nobody needs us,' says a decontamination worker at the Chernobyl plant.
For the first time since the world's worst nuclear disaster three years ago, a television crew has been back to Chernobyl - not just to the plant itself, but to the haunted villages that surround it.
Thirty-one people died and 91,000 were made homeless. An army of workers is still trying to clear up the radioactive mess. Does that mean all is now safe, or does the tragedy of Chernobyl still linger on? Series producer

London Lighthouse
An insight into the first few months of Britain's first purpose-built AIDS hospice. London Lighthouse is an experiment. The building is striking. The approach to nursing is radical. The project could provide a model for the health care of the future.
Beatty King , 26, is one of 15 nurses working at
Lighthouse. On night shift, she spends the small hours gently negotiating with Colin, who's desperate to smoke, and sitting with Christopher, who is close to death.
The patients appreciate having as much say as possible in how they are looked after. But as relationships develop, emotional pressures increase. Beatty admits, 'I don't think I realised what I was letting myself in for....' Photography

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
