: Spoiling the Child?

The Case against Modern Parenting.
Far from being seen and not heard, children and their interests are now at the heart of the modern family's concerns, with handbooks, magazines and advice columns all promoting the concept of "child centred" parenting. But has something gone wrong as a result? Catherine Bennett argues that in paying so much attention to the claims of children, we risk losing sight of the wider needs of society.

: Screen Two: All Things Bright and Beautiful

Pope Pius XII declared 1954 to be a "Marian Year", dedicated to the glory of the Blessed Virgin Mary. All over Ireland, grottos sprang up in her honour except, according to Barry Devlin's drama, in the parish of Eglish.
Influenced by an enthusiastic priest, a 10-year-old altar boy believes himself to be experiencing visions. First of all he encounters Barabbas, the Good Thief of the New
Testament (a cameo role by Gabriel Byrne); then he is found talking to a statue of the Virgin in the parish church. The people of Eglish believe they have witnessed a miracle.
Tom Wilkinson, as Father McAteer, makes his first of two appearances in the current Screen Two series, playing priests on both occasions (he co-stars in Priest later in the run). Writer/director Barry Devlin is best known in Ireland as the lead singer of 70s Celtic rock band Horslips.

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.
