: Accused

The Orkney child abuse case was one in a series of high-profile scandals that rocked Britain in the late 1980s and early 90s. In February 1991, police and social workers swooped on four families from the remote Scottish island of South Ronaldsay - and took nine children into care. Amid allegations of Satanism, a fight ensued to have the children returned and the families' names cleared. In this gripping and disturbing film, parents, children and social workers involved describe their experience. What drove the social workers to act so drastically? How did a campaign galvanise the community? The children themselves reveal what really happened in their disclosure sessions with the social workers.

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.

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.
