"A tragic loss in family is only negative," says
Pam Buckley , transplant co-ordinator at Newcastle's
Royal Victoria Infirmary, "but when donation is Involved, a family can go away and think at least some crumb of goodness did come from it."
Jane Moss , who had to face the loss of her 1 0-year-old daughter Paula, clearly agrees. Paula's kidneys, liver, heart and corneas gave new hope to no less than six people.
The problem faced by people like Pam Buckley , however, is that so many of us, in the crucial period immediately after the loss of a loved one, refuse to allow organs to be removed. Sue McAteer, whose husband was killed by a drunk driver, was one, but on reflection has changed her view and feels that "it's such a waste that somebody else could have lived".
In the UK 5,000 people are waiting for kidneys, hundreds more for heart, liver or lungs. In spite of efforts to raise awareness, the rate of organ donation has not improved in the last decade. In this special programme, subtitled Why Are We Waiting?, Danielle Donougher talks to bereaved families who have faced the dilemma, and asks what can be done to improve the present system.

Water - Profits and Poverty
A few years ago water charges were a small item on the rates bill, but now they're increasing at up to eight times the rate of inflation. In the south-west, where water bills of 9500 are not uncommon, the issue could prove crucial in government-held seats.
Elsewhere in Britain, while water chiefs and shareholders continue to enjoy a profits bonanza, "water poverty" threatens millions of families.
As Julian O'Halloran reveals, water meters are forcing their users to pay over the odds. Producer Clive Edwards

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.
