4.20 Haig Whisky Foxhunters' 'Chase (2m 6f)

: Heart Transplant: 2: A Fight for Life

A Forty Minutes documentary series in seven parts, filmed at Harefield Hospital.
Vaju Manek is in theatre awaiting his heart transplant operation. At a nearby hospital Mr Magdi Yacoub is removing the heart from a young traffic-accident victim. Very soon, unforeseen complications arise at Harefield. There are adhesions in Mr Manek's chest - the aftermath of a previous operation. Once the chest is opened, bleeding occurs, which is almost impossible to stop. The operation progresses, but in the small hours of the morning blood-donors are summoned, first from donor-panels, then from the services and the police. Despite the efforts of the surgical team, all is in vain The transplant is a technical success, but Vaju Manek dies on the following day.

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.
