: A Very Private World

Imagine a child of seven, quite beautiful, but who screams uncontrollably, cannot talk and cannot recognise her mother's love. Her body is perfect though her mind is not.
Fourteen years ago that was Ann Hodges , an autistic child born before the handicap was generally recognised. Today, through the remarkable devotion and strength of her family. Ann can read. write, talk, is affectionate - and wants a job. In the first part of this programme the Hodges tell the story of Ann's release from her very private world. But what is autism, what are the problems of diagnosis and treatment, and what help is available? That is the theme of the discussion which follows the story of Ann, between three experts on autism:
PR LORNA WING, member of the Scientific Staff of the Medical Research Council; DR NEIL O'CONNOR , Director of the MRC'S Developmental Psychology Unit; SYBIL ELGAR , headmistress of a school for autistic children. Presenter Joan Yorke

People and Politics in Ulster
Although only one of Ulster's 12 mps at Westminster supports the Sunningdale Agreement, politicians within the Province have shown the ability this year to compromise and share the task of government.
How close are the people of Northern Ireland to a lasting solution? In the end that will not be determined by the politicians but by the people themselves.

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.
