Michael Buerk presents the last in a series of reconstructions of real-life rescues featuring the emergency services, actors and those people involved in the rescues themselves. Tonight: a diver's face mask shatters after an accident and with precious oxygen escaping from his tanks, his workmates have only a few seconds to get him to the safety of a diving bell; and a Birmingham woman jumps from her burning home carrying a baby in her arms, when flames cut her off from the rest of her children.
Firefighters are called to try to save the family. Plus tips on how to protect your home from fire, and video reporter
Fiona Foster out on the frontline with the rescue services.
Executive producer Peter Salmon
Series producer Andy Batten-Foster

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.
