Golden Horizons


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.
Five programmes from the BBC2 award-winning series
Are you doing this for me, Doctor, or am I doing it for you?
Each week in British hospitals, over 5,000 researchers conduct hundreds of experiments on people. Most of the experiments are done on ordinary patients with common diseases like bronchitis, asthma and heart failure.
How many are carried out for the good of the patients concerned? How many for the benefit of medical science?
Horizon talks both to the new breed of doctor-scientists, and their critics, and looks at several human experiments-at hospitals in London, Birmingham, Edinburgh and New York. Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
Editor PETER GOODCHILD Producer peter JONES
(Winner of the Gold Award at the 1973 Berlin Prix Futura. First shown on BBCZ)

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.
