The third of four specials.
At some time in our lives, most of us want to see London, the nation's capital; we are justly proud of our heritage and take it for granted that we can go everywhere. But if you are disabled, it's a different story. Can you find an accessible hotel? Can you use the bus or tube? Can you enjoy the splendours of the Palace of Westminster in a wheelchair? Bill O'Hara is an amputee and he and his wife Annette spent two days as tourists in London as the guests of Does He Take Sugar? Their story is quite a revelation.
Presented by John Mills

Hollywood is a long way from the Yorkshire moors, and William Wyler 's Wuthering
Heights is very different from

Christopher Cook considers what happens when a literary classic is adapted for the cinema, with soundtrack illustrations and readings from the book by Penelope Wilton. Producer WENDY CLAY

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.
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.
