: The Doctor

The last programme in the documentary series giving a revealing insight into the hectic and demanding life of Dr Barry Brewster and his four GP partners in the Yorkshire Dales. This week
Dr Brewster braves blizzard conditions to trudge across the fields to visit a newly-born baby with jaundice; Willie's condition worsens in hospital; a boy with a severe foot injury needs emergency aid; and a family is helped to come to terms with cancer. The end of 1990 brought fears of full-scale war in the Gulf and uncertainties for Dr Brewster and his wife Scottie. Would he be called up to travel to the Middle East in his role as a major in the Territorial
Army's 201 General Hospital? On a happier note the three
Brewster children return from their jobs around the world in time for a family Christmas and Dr Brewster becomes godfather to the nephew of the first baby he delivered when he became a GP in Settle
30 years earlier. Producer Jeremy Mills
Executive producer Paul Hamann

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.
