Foreign-affairs reports. The United Nations-a New Resolution

General Boutros Ghaii takes up his job, Sheena McDonald asks whether the UN can finally live up to the ideals of its founders.

: 40 Minutes

Charlotte and Abi
"You can't be a mum in prison. You have to shut off to survive. You have to forget your family." Charlotte, in her early 40s, is in Holloway Prison for the third time. Her daughter Abi, 19, has been without her mother for eight years of her life. Working with inmates as film crew, 40 Minutes follows the story of mother and daughter as they struggle with Abi's teenage crises while Charlotte serves her sentence. Producer Amy Hardie graduated from the National Film School last year with Kafi Story which won several international awards.
Working as a film and video tutor in Holloway gave her the idea of training inmates as sound recordists for the 40 Minutes film. Since then one ex-inmate has embarked on a full-time film course, and another is setting up her own production company. Editor Caroline Pick

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.
