Ellesmere is a local authority home for the elderly in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London. During the last two years its staff have been taking a fresh look at every aspect of its organisation - at the way, for instance, the accommodation is arranged, the daily routines are carried out and decisions are taken. Harry Thompson reports on how far they have succeeded in turning an institution for 95 senior citizens into a place like home. and examines the dilemmas facing people dedicated to maximising the comfort and contentment of the aged in their care.

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.
