This week Maggie Philbin and Alan Maryon Davis , brave the Common Cold Unit, Salisbury.
If you think having a cold is miserable, imagine spending your annual holiday trying to catch one! And at this holiday camp, rules are strict. If you don't keep away from everyone but your flatmates, you risk losing your El.75 a day pocket money.
In the idyllic Wiltshire countryside, volunteers lie back for two weeks, only to have cold virus dropped up their noses. For 43 years these intrepid guinea pigs have been coughing and sneezing for medical research. Now take your last chance to follow their progress, as this summer the Common Cold Unit closes - without having found a cure. It's a problem not least for the couple who have been coming for 12 years, including their honeymoon! Director STUART MCDONALD Producer TERESA HUNT

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.
