: Doc Martin's Casebook

General practitioner Dr Martin Hughes highlights common medical complaints and follows patients as they seek treatment. "The more we can get people to understand these ailments," he says, "the quicker they are likely to get better."
It was just a small lump in the groin at first, appearing after Stan Tunstall's 3-year-old daughter jumped on him in a rough-and-tumble. Stan and his wife Lorae nicknamed the hernia Ernie. He could have had an operation almost immediately, but as a self-employed builder Stan just couldn't afford to stop working at the time. Eighteen months later, however, the rupture was having a devastating effect on Stan's ability to do his job, particularly since the gurgling Ernie made it impossible for him to lift heavy weights. It was time for Ernie to go.

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.
