: Doc Martin's Casebook

GP Dr Martin Hughes examines some common medical complaints and follows patients as they seek treatment.
Nobody likes going to the dentist, but most people realise that staying away can only make the problem worse.
Pauline Stoneham is a dental phobic who has stayed away for 20 years. She has cancelled appointments and even fled the waiting room, though the price is agonising toothache and over-dependence on painkillers.
The phobia was born when Mrs Stoneham was in her 20s, when a dentist's needle accidentally and painfully slipped into her lip. Anxious not to pass on the phobia to her children, she has to fight back her fears even when it's them visiting the dentist. Self-help was the first step - taking a job as a cleaner in a dental surgery. Then one of the dentists suggested hypnotherapy, and she has pinned her hopes on this. Producer Helen Thomas
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.

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.
