: Rings On Their Fingers

by RICHARD WARING starringand
When Sandy Bennett and Oliver Pryde met and fell in love, they both decided that they didn't want to do the conventional thing and get married. Instead she moved into his flat, and for the past six years they have been happily enjoying non-marital bliss. Recently, however, Sandy has been wondering whether their relationship should now receive the benefit of clergy - an idea which appals Oliver, whose views are summed up by the title of this first episode - ' What difference does a piece of paper make? ' featuring

: The Rhesus Conundrum

For centuries a mystery disease took its toll of unborn children and newborn infants. There was no clue to the solution of the problem until the 1940s. Then scientists realised that it was somehow connected with the blood groups of the father and the mother. The rhesus monkey gave the first clue to what caused the disease - and, only a few years ago, the swallowtail butterfly added the clue as to how it might be prevented
In this programme Robert Reid looks at the complex and triumphant scientific detective work which made it possible to master the disease-and at the hazards which still face the pregnant mother when the lesson is not applied.

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.
