Eight hundred miles off the west coast of Ireland a small aircraft was hit by lightning, leaving pilot Werner Soehlmann with no long-range radio, no navigational equipment and very little fuel. Michael Buerk introduces some more stories of real-life rescues including reconstruction of the difficult task a Nimrod from RAF Kinloss in Scotland had trying to find Soehlmann and his plane.
Also featured is the story of a mountain bike accident in an isolated area of the Sussex Downs at the Chalk Pit, Offham just outside of Lewes in East Sussex. Although two of Martin Back's companions were doctors, they had no medical equipment with them and Back was fighting for his life.
Juliet Morris provides the third of five reports on the London Helicopter Emergency Service. This week's film - and it is not a reconstruction but the actual events recorded as they happened - covers a call to the scene of a motorbike accident on one of London's busiest roads in the rush hour.
Life-saving courses: there are 1,000 free courses on offer in Yorkshire. To book a place, telephone [number removed]. Lines open at 9.30pm and the call will cost no more than 50p. More safety details on Ceefax page 62

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.
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.
