'I am a Catholic and was seeing a Protestant girl. My parents didn't like this and told me to end the relationship. When I refused they told me to leave. I have left home and have had to leave school and look for a job. Life was bearable until my girlfriend's parents forbade her to see me again.'
'People have been killed and maimed by terrorism and compared to these people I am lucky. That is the whole basis of my protest. We are not victims of terrorism - we are victims of our own parents.' (Robert, Belfast) The Mailbag phone-line, [number removed], is open every Wednesday, 7.0-10.0 pm
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.
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.
