: * UNIVERSITY FORUM

A new series of programmes in which dominating issues of our time are discussed by prominent figures in academic life with members of British Universities
2: Morals and Modern Medicine

Robin Day introduces a discussion between
Dr. Henry Miller ,F.R.C.P.
Vice-chancellor,
University of Newcastle upon Tyne and Geoffrey Spencer
M.B., B.S., F.F.A.R.C.S.
Head of the Intensive Therapy Unit, St. Thomas Hospital and a specially invited audience of members of teaching hospitals of London University
Director, KEITH CLEMENT
Producer, MARGARET DOUGLAS
A whole new range of medical techniques is emerging, making it increasingly possible to prolong human life. But when is it justifiable and desirable to use these methods? What should be the social and economic priorities? Who should apply them? The techniques present society with a series of ethical problems.
Dr. Miller, as Director of the B.M.A.'s Planning Unit, has recently produced a widely publicised report on the place of organ transplantation in the future. Dr. Spencer, as head of the largest intensive care unit in Britain, is concerned with how society should deploy the enormous resources that these modern forms of therapy can consume.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
