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.
Extraordinary stories of heroism and bravery reconstructed by the emergency services, actors and those people involved in the rescues themselves.
Featured tonight are a 5-year-old girl who was trapped in a crushed car with just her hand poking from the wreckage; an ambulanceman who has to overcome his own fear of heights to save a casualty 100 feet up a radio mast; and a young man who survived underground for four hours in a 22-inch sewer pipe.
Plus, a report from the frontline of the rescue services - this week, with the ski patrol in Aviemore - as well as 200 free life-saving courses, and first aid tips. With Michael Buerk and Juliet Morris.

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.
