: Hypotheticals

The return of the series that explores the ethical issues surrounding social policy, and the gap between theory and practice.
Following the format of previous series, imaginary case studies are devised representing real-life experiences.
Professionals working in the field are guided through each fictional case and questioned on the decisions they would make. The technique enables participants to talk openly without betraying client confidentiality, while moderators try to test the thinking behind the positions being taken.
1: Baby Alarm. The first programme in the three-part series aims to discover under what circumstances social workers would remove a baby from its parents. Does theirwork ever compromise an individual's right to privacy? And howfarwill they go to protect endangered children? Is it, for example, excessive to set up a covert filming operation and record parents' lovemaking in the search for evidence of risk to a baby? Moderator Helena Kennedy QC tries to walk the line between personal liberty and the protection of innocent children.
Producers Juliet Winstone , Linda Bell ; Series editor Robin Kent

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.
