E.C.T.
Electro-Convulsive Therapy is a treatment for severe depression in which 120 volts is applied to the patient's head for up to three seconds. Many people know someone who's had E.C.T. so it's somewhat surprising that scientists have only just begun to ask the fundamental question, does E.C.T. work? Kieran Prendiville investigates.

: Newseries Secrets

The first of four films that look at those parts of officialdom other series seldom reach. It throws light on those who too often turn harmless information into confidential documents.
In Keeping Secrets, Ed Boyle listens to tenants unbottle their suspicions about the gas explosion, the cause of which is being kept hidden. He hears a local councillor Protest at laws changed behind her back, and a historian laugh at 60-year-old Christmas cards still enveloped in the Official Secrets Act. Has the British liking for privacy become an addiction to secrecy?
And why do some people . think it's damaging to our health? .

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.
