An eccentric practical joker dies leaving a fortune to each of four relatives-on various conditions. The exploits the relatives have to undertake in order to inherit provide plenty of comic situations. In addition to an array of some of our most accomplished comedy players, watch out for Audrey Hepburn in her first film part, as a cigarette girl in a night-club.

: Intimate Relationships

A Friend of the Family
The first of three programmes about the relationships between doctors and their patients.
A friend of the family ... that Is how your family doctor would like to be regarded - even though he knows you play games with him. Games like ' Wooden Leg'; ' Clever Doctor '; ' Why don't you - yes but.' Sometimes you may not even fully realise you are playing them. But your family doctor does.
The doctor and his black bag are synonymous with humanity and wisdom. He is the one to turn to in moments of personal crisis. But at the same time he probably has his own special games, too-games which enable him to put you at your ease; ploys designed to relieve your embarrassment at that most private of all moments - the Consultation. It is all part of a unique and complex relationship. But how deep does it really go?

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.
