Pioneers

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
The documentary series charting the ground-breaking research carried out during the first five decades of the NHS. An Affair of the Heart. Donald Ross has been part of a revolution in cardiac surgery. When he was a newly qualified doctor in the late forties -the early days of heart surgery- dying patients were packed in ice to slow their heartbeats. Surgeons hadjust eight minutes to operate.
Today, heart defects that would have meant certain death 50 years ago can be corrected quickly and simply. Producer Sally Doganis ; Series producer

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.
