Lauren's guilt gets in the way of true love. Philip wonders if he should leave his family.

: Countryfile

The series about life in the British countryside focuses this week on the future for the family doctor in rural areas. As more rural general practices become fund-holding, the programme investigates whether patients are losing out. Presenter John Craven talks to Dr Gareth Emrys-Jones about his thriving fund-holding five-surgery partnership in Devon. He claims that waiting list times have been cut and new services added.
Arguing the case against fund-holding is Dr Bruce Herriot who runs a small rural surgery in Cradley, Worcestershire. He believes that the system creates a two-tier health service and undermines the doctor/patient relationship. Plus the regular look at the weather for the week ahead.

Lynda La Plante 's nine-part drama set around the lives of a Welsh lifeboat crew comes to an end tonight with a story called UN1407, about a foreign coaster with a seriously injured crewman and a dangerous and unstable deckload of barrels.
When the shout goes out for the Penrhys lifeboat the men are in the middle of a fancy-dress party for Bronwen's twin girls, so some strange characters dash to the boathouse for the launch.

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.
