Miracle Man. Could there be a miracle cure-all wonder drug? In a kitchen at the back of a trailer in the Arizona desert a Swiss bio-chemist has developed a herbal "cure-all" medicine, using traditional native American plants. He claims his miracle elixir has successfully treated diverse conditions from cancer and chronic fatigue to ulcers and baldness. And he says that he has the patients to prove it.
When documentary film-maker Henry Murray had a lump in his neck diagnosed as being a potentially malignant tumour, he decided to try alternative medicine rather than risk a dangerous six-hour operation. He spent a month in the desert trying the medicine for himself, helping in its manufacture and meeting people who believed they had been cured.

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.
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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
