: Stephen Grenfell is the storyteller in OUR DAY AND AGE

16-Despair is my Parish
Written by Stephen Grenfell
Research by Michael Hardwick
Series edited and produced by Alan Burgess
During the last three-and-a-quarter years hundreds of men and women in the London area have rung MANsion House 9000 with a particular purpose in mind. All of them have been human beings in despair-human beings for whom life no longer seemed to have any purpose-many of them men and women on the verge of suicide. They dialled an organisation called ' Telephone Samaritans,' started and maintained by the Rev.
Chad Varah, Rector of St. Stephen, Walbrook. Tonight's programme reconstructs the case of a young woman who contemplated suicide and who dialled ' Telephone Samaritans ' because she sought the comfort and succour she had found nowhere else.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
