: Leslie

Leslie Lemke is 33 and was born with brain damage. His eyes were surgically removed because of an infection. Unable to fend for himself, he looks a sad, dispirited figure. But seat him at a piano, and an amazing transformation takes place: his shoulders go back, he breaks into a broad smile and his fingers, which under normal circumstances can't even hold a knife and fork, attack the keyboard with an ability that allows him to give concerts all over America.
Marjorie Lofthouse talks to
Leslie's family and doctors, and assesses how the study of his condition, Savant Syndrome, may help other mentally handicapped people.

Introduced from Glasgow by Mary Marquis
Over 100 years ago William Quarrier built a children's village in the Renfrewshire hills for orphans from the Glasgow slums. It remained Scotland's largest children's home until the late 1970s, when a drop in the number of children coming into care forced a rethink on how the village should be run. JOAN ELRicK reports on the changing face of Quarrier Village.
For KAY MORRIS and her husband the purchase of Holy Island in the Firth of Clyde was a dream come true. But can they survive and keep the island unspoilt? Producer COLIN CALEY BBC Scotland

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.
