: Q.E.D.

Sweet FA
Alun's brother died of it at 34; so did his sister; Alun is past his 34th birthday and as he says, living on borrowed time. FA is Friedreich's Ataxia; sweet says Alun Jones , because of the diabetes he suffers along with it. Sweet FA is the title of his autobiography; but it could be his comment on government spending on research into this progressively crippling, inherited disease. Not that
Alun or his family complain. They do all they can to raise money to support the research project trying to discover the faulty gene which causes this cruel disease and find a cure. But should this kind of research be made to depend on the fund-raising efforts of sufferers and their families? Series editor DAVID FILKIN Producer KISANE PRICE

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.
