: States of Mind: The Enemy Within

The Princess of Wales, Elton John and Lena Zavaroni have all had eating disorders. Anorexia and bulimia - the condition in which sufferers binge then purge themselves either by vomiting or using laxatives - are both on the increase. Tonight, as part of the BBC's mental health season, children's TV presenter Michaela Strachan tells Professor Anthony Clare about her teenage anorexia. Michaela recalls her first day at dance school, when her teacher told members of the group that they were either "too fat" or "too thin". From then on, she found that she could survive on less and less food and, eventually, discovered she wasn't hungry. After returning from a tour in Canada, her family saw she was markedly thinner, and were alerted to how serious the problem had become.
(The next programme in the series is on Thursday at 10.10pm)
(Stereo) (Subtitled)


Interviewee: Michaela Strachan
Interviewer: Professor Anthony Clare

: East: Lifting the Veil

Documentary series that focuses on issues of current concern to the Asian community.

Tonight, East reports on the soft-porn magazines appearing on newsagents' shelves that feature Asian women and men in nude and provocative poses. The young people modelling for the magazines, many of which are Asian-owned, risk rejection and isolation from their communities.
Some members of the Asian community are calling for a ban on the magazines, but with hardcore pornography featuring Asian couples now appearing, are they fighting a losing battle? The issue highlights a generation gap between British-born Asians and their families, and how the lure of big money is, for some, more persuasive than traditional values.

It is the start of a bitter fight as the doctors try to use drugs to eradicate his "inappropriate beliefs".
(The next programme is on Thursday at 8.00pm)

Director: Lorraine Heggessey
Executive Producer: Robert Thirkell

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.
