: 999: Dramatic Stories of Real Life Rescues

Michael Buerk presents a seven-part series featuring extraordinary real-life stories of heroism and bravery reconstructed by the emergency services, actors and those people involved in the rescues themselves.
A form of "reality television", which is very popular in the United States, the programmes are described by series producer Andy Batten-Foster as "enhanced documentaries".
His aim has been to make engaging films using all the available film techniques, including non-documentary drama.
Tonight's programme includes a gas explosion that buries a woman under a block of flats; a birthday treat which goes disastrously wrong when a skydiver passes out 12,000ft up; and a runaway motorboat that causes havoc and injury off the coast of Devon.
Plus first aid tips, and video reporter Fiona Foster with her first weekly report from the frontline of the rescue services.

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.

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

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.
