Children's Hospital


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.
Documentary series about
Birmingham children's hospital. The casualty department is kept busy treating five-year-old Jake [text removed] , who has a rubber wedged firmly up his nose, and seven-year-old Steven [text removed] , who has cut his foot while playing in a public fountain.
Six-week-old Jessica [text removed] is rushed in for an emergency operation because she cannot feed or breathe properly. Eight-year-old cancer patient Aaron [text removed] is well enough to go home, once he starts eating properly again, but two-year-old Ellie [text removed] , who has had surgery on a cancerous brain tumour, must return to hospital because of an infection.

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.
