Adam is forced to reveal his secret to Sam. Tina grows emotionally attached to a rape victim. Receptionist Amy, now heavily pregnant, is sent for tests with Duffy after fainting.
Written by Gillian Richmond
See today's choices.

Then National Lottery Update

Casualty 8.05pm BBC1
How do you react when you learn intimate details about someone's personal history? Sam thinks he's been exploited when Adam reveals a secret to him, but Chloe is hurt that her flatmate Tina hasn't turned to her for support before.
After his recent absence Charlie is back in the thick of it, too. Even before he gets to work he is flagged down by a man who says his wife has been beaten after disturbing burglars. It looks a lot more like a case of domestic assault to senior house officer George, but there are strongly differing views on whether the medical staff can get involved.
After recent episodes showing the marginalised lives of some local people, this week reverts to more inward-looking storylines, highlighting relations between the staff.

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.
