: Doc Martin's Casebook

In each of these eight programmes, new television GP
Dr Martin Hughes will examine a common medical complaint from the patient's point of view and follow them as they seek treatment. "The series is vitally important," he says. "It concentrates on everyday illnesses which everyone could suffer from, but the more we can get people to understand these common ailments the quicker they are likely to get better." He also hopes to demonstrate that "one ill person in a household can have a tremendously damaging effect on the lives of those around them".
The first case is one such example. Tom and Gwyneth fell in love, married and had a family. But Tom's snoring created nightly tension which began to wreck their marriage. Practical help finally arrived, but it was not the cure they were expecting. Producer Sally Dixon
Series editor Michael Latham

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.
