: EYE ON RESEARCH

The First Breath of Life
Raymond Baxter reports from the Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm
Why does a baby draw its first breath? Doctors are by no means certain, but tome babies experience difficulty, and this is now considered a major cause of Infant mortality during the first week of life. For this reason doctors are paying increasing attention to the first minutes of life.
Outside Broadcast cameras of Swedish Radio visit the Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm to see how these studies are made on a new-born baby.

: ENQUIRY

by ROBERT REID into issues of importance to Britons
4: Fitness for Work
At one time pneumoconiosis was a scourge in the coal mines. Today research and treatment and measures to suppress dust keep the disease in check. What about other industries? Are they aware how important to them is the health of their workers? What problems do noise, repetition, and new materials bring? Should there be special local industrial health centres everywhere?

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 from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
