If you met Jane in the street you would never guess her problem. With her long blonde hair and black maxi-coat she looks like a thousand other girls-a credit to any family. She is in fact a heroin addict, who twice in the past year has been dangerously ill as a result of her addiction. This programme traces Jane's life from childhood in an attempt to discover what led this girl from a comfortable middle-class family to take to drugs. Jane's story is followed by a discussion on some of the medical, social, and psychological problems posed by addiction.

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.
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.
