: Matters of Life and Death: Death Unto Himself Alone

Christopher Brasher investigates the new advances in medicine and the terrifying problems, moral, legal, and economic, which they pose.

Death can come suddenly - in a car crash for instance - or it can come slowly as our bodies grow old and fragile. But nowadays death can be held at bay.
The car crash victim who would have died ten years ago can sometimes be saved. But if it is the brain that is severely damaged should the doctor always strive to save that life? And if he does, what happens to that person when he emerges from hospital? Death from senility can now also be postponed. But do we want to go on living beyond our natural span? Is it death that frightens us - or the prospect of dying? At last a few doctors are specialising in the management of death and their results show that we should not be so afraid.

(The last of three programmes)

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
