Several weeks into their filming schedule, and the BBC crew were already treated as part of the furniture at Sheffield Children's Hospital, and began to understand the hard realities of the economies that force the staff to make some difficult decisions.
Severe winter weather has led to a rush of emergency admissions, and every bed is full; but there are still children with chronic problems in need of surgical beds. Into the chaos comes Michael [text removed], a toddler with a serious intolerance to food, here to attempt the "egg challenge".
Meanwhile 2-year-old Luke [text removed] is down on intensive care, as he has been for most of his life, struck down by a rogue virus, paralysed from the waist down. And Jonathan [text removed] is back, as the frame on his foot is causing him pain.

: Omnibus

Magic Lantern
Writer Michael Frayn has long been fascinated with eastern europe, and to celebrate his
60th birthday in September he visited Prague to make an Omnibus film on one of the world's most beautiful cities.
It is, as he reveals, a city of contrasts and ironies. In the shadows of its marvellous architecture, for example, lies a network of covered passages and secret underworld paths. It has a Protestant history, yet is a showcase of Catholic art. During the war, the Allies defended
Warsaw, which was destroyed, but ignored Prague, which thus survived. And, most recently, it remained largely unchanged because it was run by Communists dedicated to reforming the world.
Frayn explores the city's theatrical tradition, in particular the tiny showcases for illusion and puppetry for which Prague is famous, like the Magic Lantern and the Black Theatre.

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.
