More real-life dramas from the wards of Sheffield Children's Hospital.
Eleven-year-old Claire [text removed] is only three feet nine inches tall. Surgery could lengthen her legs, but it's a process that will take more than three years. Will she decide to go through with it? See today's choices.
Producer Jennifer Crone; Series producer Tracy Cook

Children's Hospital
8.00pm BBC 1
Eleven-year-old Claire is never likely to grow taller than 4 feet 4 inches. She has achondroplasic dwarfism and is one of the two children featured in tonight's programme about the patients and doctors of Sheffield Children's Hospital.
So far 40 children have undergone leg lengthening surgery at the hospital. However, it is an extremely painful process that will confine Claire to a wheelchair for three years. At the end of it she will have to learn to walk again. The programme follows her deliberations as she makes the biggest decision of her life.
For nine-month-old Emma it is not a question of whether or not to have treatment for her liver disease - without a transplant she will die. Even when the tense wait for a suitable donor finally comes to an end, Emma's fight for life is not over.

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.
