: The Visit: Give Me Tomorrow

with Desmond Wilcox
The drama of people's lives and the journeys they make. Marc Humphreys needed a heart/lung transplant or he would die. He had been on the waiting list for longer than average.
His time was running out and his only hope of a cure for the deteriorating emphysema that made him a prisoner in his own home was for the transplant team at Papworth Hospital,
Cambridgeshire to find a suitable donor.
Marc, a talented engineer and inventor, was on the brink of a successful future when the disease struck.
The Visit started filming him at the beginning of this year. Marc became worse. At the last moment, a donor was found. The operation took place just a few weeks' ago and it seemed a success. For a month Marc worked to recover fully - then an infection struck him. In spite of heroic efforts by the hospital team, he died.
Almost his last wish was that the film of his fight for a transplant would still go out. It is now a memorial to his courage and a tribute to the transplant team.

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.
