More trouble is brewing at Holby City as tensions rise for Rachel.

See today's choices.
Episode written by Christopher Reason

Casualty: 8.05pm, BBC1
For the first time in weeks there is slightly more emphasis on the patients' problems than those of the medical staff of Holby City Hospital. One of the main storylines involves misunderstanding and depression: Jane Lapotaire makes a guest appearance as a woman who has been on tranquillizers since the birth of her now grown-up daughter. "She takes the sufferings of the whole world on her shoulders and she pays the price," explains her weary husband. "Daddy, don't romanticise it - she's made our lives a misery," snaps her daughter. And for those still on tenterhooks about the Baz/Charlie/Peter love triangle: Baz finally summons up her courage and makes a major decision tonight.

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.
