One in ten people with an artificial hip needs to have the joint re-fitted at some stage. At the moment, surgeons must use a hammer and chisel to chip away the old cement which holds the artificial joint in place, and this process may riskfracturingthe fragile bone. Now a sophisticated new surgical instrument can be used to gently melt the cement away using ultrasound. This clever new device was inspired by an ultrasonic tile cutter which was first shown on Tomorrow's World back in 1988. It was spotted by a viewer who was an orthopaedic surgeon.
Plus, a report from Italy on the mysteries of weeping Madonnas and milk-drinking Ganesh statues. Are these "miracles" really examples of supernatural intervention or is there a more earthly explanation?
Presented by Shahnaz Pakravan and Howard Stableford, with Philippa Forrester, Jez Nelson, Rebecca Stephens and Vivienne Parry.

There's a moral to the first story in tonight's 999: if you're going to catch a rare and deadly tropical disease, try and do so when there's a a team of international medical experts nearby. That's what happened to Jill Sanderson, a Bristol midwife doing voluntary work in Sierra Leone, who contracted lassa fever - for which there is no known cure. Fortunately for her, a team of American scientists also happened to be in Sierra Leone doing a research project, and treated Jill Sanderson with a new, untried drug. "It had never been used on humans before," says one of the doctors. "It was a gamble." Find out what happened tonight.

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.
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.
