: The Critical Point

by Evelyn Frazer.
[Starring] Leo McKern
with Eric Lander and Margo Johns.
Film sequences by the BBC North Region Film Unit
From the BBC's North of England television studio, Manchester

For some years now the phrase 'Deep Freeze' has been creeping more and more into scientific discussion, and experiments have been carried out developing the possibilities of 'hibernation anaesthesia'. Tonight's exciting play by Evelyn Frazer tells the story of the first human 'guinea-pig' to undergo this experiment. Philip Gage, a young doctor closely concerned with tests that have so far been carried out only on animals, finds suddenly a good reason why he should be the first man to volunteer. But although he may temporarily have escaped from the world of the living, he cannot fully escape the world of reality which is slowly closing its net about him...

: Sea and Ships: Coasters

Alan Villiers introduces...
The M.V. Pacific Coast is one of nearly nine hundred British coasters, four hundred of which are probably at sea at this moment. She is a 1,700-ton liner coaster, running to a definite schedule.
This evening's programme follows her to sea, sailing by night from London Docks, down London River, past the South Goodwins Lightship and down Channel. She sails on across the great trade routes, past Land's End to Queens-town and Cork and finally to Liverpool, the home of many of her crew and of her master, Captain Joe Beckett, O.B.E.

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.
