: 4472-FLYING SCOTSMAN

an epitaph for the age of steam
Ifs the smell, the familiar smell of smoke and the beat of the engine; the feeling you're being pulled not by a mechanical box on wheels but by something pulsing and alive ...
On May 1, 1968, the famous locomotive 4472-Flying Scotsman-pulled out of King's Cross exactly forty years from the day of its first non-stop run between London and Edinburgh. On board the train were three hundred railway enthusiasts. This film is an impression of their journey.
Producer, PATRICIA INGRAM
Director, TONY WHEELER
Executive producer. ROWAN AYERS First shown on BBC-2

: THE TROUBLE WITH BEING ONE SELF

Tuesday's Documentary

Dr. Stephen Black looks at
The Problem Behind the transplants
Produced by PHILIP DALY
Identical twins apart, every individual is different. In each of us there is a defence system which constantly distinguishes 'self' from ' non-self.' Every foreign invader is rejected, whether it be a deadly germ or someone else's heart. Some mothers even reject their own babies; and even the familiar allergies, asthma and hay fever can be caused by ' 'foreign' pollens in the air we breathe. The immunologists have made use of this reaction to protect us from disease, as every mother knows when she has her baby immunised.
There is now evidence that the body may also try to reject its own cancer cells as if they belonged to somebody else, and research in immunology may, for the first time, have provided us with the first real clue as to where the key to the cancer problem might lie.
In this programme some of the world's leading immunologists, whose previous work has already enabled surgeons to transplant hearts, kidneys, and livers between different individuals, talk about their present research and some of the promises it holds.

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.
