Introduced by Sue MacGregor With almost a fifth of Britain's population now aged over 65, it's easy to see why the concept of sheltered housing has been so widely promoted in recent years.

'Once you're burgled, you've lost what you've treasured and it's most unlikely you'll get it back.'
One in every 40 householders a year are now victims of a burglary. Chris Serle investigates some of the causes and effects of this crime wave. He follows the police checking for clues in a ransacked house, talks to victims about their reactions, asks burglars why they commit this crime and seeks advice on just how you can secure your home and your property. This documentary is followed by a phone-in when listeners will be able to put their questions to Superintendent
Philip Veater , Deputy Director of the Home Office Crime Prevention Centre, and Helen Reeves , Director of the National Association of Victims Support Schemes.

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.
