: Doc Martin's Casebook

In this series GP Dr Martin
Hughes examines common medical complaints and follows patients as they seek treatment. "The more we can get people to understand these common ailments," he says,
"the quicker they are likely to get better."
This week he focuses on back pain. The story began with what could have been a trivial accident, just an awkward fall against a chair at work. But the result for Gill Bailey has been months of agonising back pain. She has been given contradictory advice, has been made to feel a malingerer, and has seen her pain cause serious tensions within the family. After such conventional treatments as traction and painkillers have proved ineffective, and in the month that a Private Member's Bill proposes official recognition for osteopaths, she turns to an "alternative" form of therapy.

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.
