: 40 Minutes

On the 20 March last year Bronwen Vickers, husband Paul and two children 4-year-old Hannah and 13-day-old Harriet went shopping in Warrington. As they left Boots, an IRA bomb exploded, severely injuring Bronwen.
Peter Gordon's specially extended film is the first of two within this series which give personal accounts of women facing life-changing circumstances. It tells the extraordinary story of one family's courage and pain during the year after the Warrington bomb. Although Bronwen lost a leg, she says she is not bitter about the perpetrators. She is even able to make a joke about her missing foot: "would have liked to say goodbye to it."
But she does have strong views on the problem in Northern Ireland: "It's anger and bitterness and revenge that have brought this about, and it's a futile exercise ... it won't change anything."
Sadly, Bronwen and her family had more problems to face during the year. "It's s not fair," says Paul. "But life isn't fair. You soon realise that."

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.
