Davis and Maggie Philbin are at the National Spinal Injuries Centre, Stoke
Mandeville, with the man who raised E10 million to build it - Jimmy Savile , OBE. Fifty years ago, if you damaged your spinal cord, it was nearly always fatal. Today, doctors at Stoke
Mandeville aim to send their patients home after six to nine months. They work with a close-knit team to help each patient to achieve their personal best - for some that may be driving a car with special controls, swimming, or even archery; for others, getting dressed or moving around in a wheelchair.

: The Vet: Life and Death

The first of seven programmes.

7.00am: the phone rings. An emergency call from a farmer in trouble with a cow calving. The start of another hectic day for George Rafferty, an energetic country vet in the Scottish Highlands. Further calls bring a sick labrador puppy, a wounded donkey and a final call to the much loved family pet of the local vicar. For the past 40 years, George has answered the veterinary needs of a community where his clients are also his friends. He survives with the help of his wife Jane, assistant Willie, a wee dram and compassion and wit.

(Book: "The Vet - Beyond the Surgery Door" is published to coincide with the series and is available at bookshops.)

Barry Norman returns to cast a critical eye over the new releases.
Sex, Lies and Videotape, the award-winning film from Steven Soderburgh, examines the emotional dishonesty between men and women and the curious way in which a video camera becomes a form of confessional.

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.
