Lifeline Express
At the age of 12 Sir John Wilson was blinded in a school laboratory accident, and has dedicated his working life to the prevention and treatment of disability. Thirty years ago the Prime Minister of India, Pandit Nehru , told him that India's greatest asset was its railway system, and many years later Sir John has persuaded the Indian government to provide a train fitted out as a mobile hospital, travelling from village to village throughout India.
Bismilia is 7. Since contracting polio as a baby she has never been able to stand, gettingaround her village by crawling in the dirt. Then her mother heard about the " magic train", the Lifeline Express.
QED follows the train into
Bismilla's village to treat those suffering from polio, blindness and deafness. The film also covers Sir John's first visit to the train, and the first steps Bismilla takes after her operation. Narrator Sue Lawley. Producer Fiona Holmes

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.
