Ric's complicity in Abra's misdeeds forces him to take a drastic decision.
Writer Gert Thomas
(Signed repeat next Sunday)

Pick of the Day: Holby City
Is surgeon Ric Griffin (Hugh Quarshie) about to wash his hands of Holby once and for all?

Medical Drama
Holby City 8.00pm BBC1
It looks as though Ric Griffin and Abra Durant's foray into experimental surgery techniques is about to make the headlines. Unfortunately, "Holby's Hog Horror" seems the most likely one. Pete Golding, the renal transplant patient who received a pig's kidney courtesy of the pair of doctors, has been brought back into hospital and is threatening to kick up a stink about the illegal procedure.
This could be the cue for Abra (Adrian Edmondson) to do his usual vanishing act and he admits that the job in Africa is looking increasingly attractive. However, it's Ric (Hugh Ouarshie) who seems to be panicking the most. "What's the matter with him? Is it a midlife crisis?" asks one of the staff. "Don't think so. He usually gets married then," is Diane's tart reply.
But while Ric isn't getting remarried, he does have an announcement to make that surprises all his colleagues at Holby - none more so than the maverick Abra. (Jane Rackham)

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
