: The Gift of Life

A That's Life special report on transplant surgery with Esther Rantzen Gavin Campbell Bill Buckley
Thousands of children and adults are now chronically ill, waiting for a transplant, the gift of life, which is their only hope. Many will wait in vain, many will die because of the tragic shortage of donor organs.
Four years after
Ben Hardwick first brought to public attention the acute shortage of donors, transplant surgery has achieved new miracles. And yet the waiting lists grow longer.
What are the solutions? In tonight's programme meet People who have been given new life by transplant, and those still on the waiting list. There's a report from America on the use of baboons' hearts and from India on the sale of human kidneys.
Transplant surgeon Sir Roy Calne, and Health Minister
Edwina Curry join a panel of guests to discuss the medical and ethical issues involved. Director ROBIN BEXTOR

The Yamaguchis' Story
Mr Yamaguchi is a typical Tokyo 'salaryman': workaholic, conformist and, like most Japanese, uninterested in religion.
When his wife discovers he's been having an affair, and tries to kill herself, their world is thrown into confusion.
In search of help,
Mrs Yamaguchi joins Shinnyuen, one of the new evangelistic Buddhist sects that have grown up in the post-war period. She becomes a 'born-again Buddhist'.
Mr Yamaguchi is horrified.
Buddhism for him is reserved for funeral services; he distrusts Shinnyuen's new-fangled style.
This film traces what happens to the Yamaguchis' marriage, and looks at how the new sects are answering the spiritual needs of people who have suffered the flip-side of the economic miracle.

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.
