Doc Martin's Casebook


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.
General practitioner Dr Martin Hughes examines common medical problems and follows patients during their treatment. The most dangerous place in the world for a young child is in and around the home. It is here that serious accidents are likely to happen resulting in youngsters being rushed to hospital with broken bones, poisoning, cuts and burns - the continual nightmare of all parents. Tonight's programme tells the story of a typical accident to a small child and the effect it has on a frantic family. On a Saturday afternoon,
5-year-old Ryan [text removed] was playing in the communal yard outside the family home near Manchester when his mother heard him scream. Unknown to her, he had found some petrol, soaked his hand in it and set it alight. After undergoing a skin graft and spending a week in the burns unit, Ryan was finally discharged, but even then the nightmare wasn't over. Producer Sally Dixon
Series editor Michael Latham

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.
