: Casualty

Personnel changes are the order of the day at
Holby City this week. As
Duffy announces her decision to resign (she makes her last appearance in the next episode), Staff Nurse
Mary Skillett arrives on the ward, just in time for an outbreak of chronic dysentery.
Tara Moran , who plays Nurse
Skillett, appeared in Granada's Families for two years and did a six-month stint in Coronation
Street (as Christine Carter ) in 1989. "When I auditioned for
Casualty I came back home feeling very depressed; I was convinced I would never get this job," says Moran. "I'd almost got to the point where I was goingto give it all up and go back to college. Then I got the phone call, and my life had changed completely. I didn't give the idea of packing it in another thought."

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.
