: Fighting Back

The series in which well-known people reveal how they coped with losing their health.
From the Neighbours studios in Melbourne, Anne Haddy tells of real-life drama in her battle with a succession of near fatal illnesses. Anne, who has played Helen Daniels in the Australian soap since the first episode - which was seen in Britain in 1986 - has survived a major coronary, open heart surgery, cancer and serious accident.
But through it all she has kept on working.
"I love life so much I want a little bit more of it," she says. "But when I die, it won't be a big shock because it's been anticipated for so long, you see."
She talks to Lynn Redgrave about more surgery yet to come - if her heart can stand the strain.

: An Inconvenient Woman

Concluding part of the two-part mini-series about the dark side of life among the Los Angeles monied elite. Based on the best-selling novel by Dominick Dunne and starring Jason Robards
Jill Eikenberry
Rebecca De Momay
Ostracised by financier
Jules Mendelson for confronting him about Hector's death, New York author Philip Quennell continues to dig for clues to what happened on the night of the murder.
Flo's knowledge of the seedier side of Hollywood proves invaluable to him in his search for justice, but the uncovering of unwanted facts leads to further loss of life.
The look of this big-budget production may remind viewers of Dynasty - one of the scenes was shot in the mansion used for that series and its costume consultant was
Nolan Miller , creator of the Dynasty wardrobe.

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.
