Heart of the Matter

Synopsis

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.
One Brief life
The story of Baby L, whose parents fought to keep her on a life support machine in a New Zealand hospital in spite of doctors' opposition, made headlines around the world. This programme tells the inside story of Baby L's brief life, from her mother in whose arms she eventually died, and from the doctors who went to court to win the right to terminate her life. Presented by Joan Bakewell.
Last in the current series which returns next year.

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.
