The Trouble with Sex: Good Practice


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.
Could you go to your doctor with a sex problem? And if you could, what reaction would you get?
Unfortunately, most medical students have no specific training to deal with sexual and sexually related difficulties. But help is available for qualified doctors who want to improve their skills in this important and sensitive area of general practice.
In this programme Peter Barrett, a GP in Nottingham who trained with the Institute of Psychosexual Medicine, shows how even a short consultation, if handled well, can be of real benefit to the patient.

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.
