: Emergency - Bloomsbury 3

It is the country's busiest ambulance station. The shop-talk is of knifings, suicides ... and the babies that have been delivered.
For ex-nurse Tracie Norris and Richard Rogers , who used to work in a bank, the first week in emergency ambulance Bloomsbury 3 is like an assault course.
Seasoned instructor
Don Parsons is on hand, but there is extra pressure on Tracie and Richard, fresh as they are from training school.
They have got new cardiac equipment which brings the London Ambulance Service into line with American paramedics.
Meanwhile, newly-qualified Elaine Bennett and Dave Webb battle with the mounting pressures of traffic chaos, the closing of hospital casualty departments - and the increasing threat of violence to ambulance crews, called out to emergencies where they never know what to expect.

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.
