One in four of us will become mentally ill at some point during our lives. Yet critics of policy in this area regard it as a sad catalogue of mismanagement and neglect, with much of the blame directed at government underfunding and inadequate community care. In this programme, Niall Dickson argues that the root of this failure lies in attitudes towards the mentally ill and the lack of agreement as to how they should be treated.

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.
