The next Casualty? page 26

Then National Lottery Update

[Photo caption] Guilt-edged bond: Chloe (Jan Anderson), Tina (Claire Goose) and Sean (Gerald Kyd) are sorely tried in Casualty

Casualty 8.05pm BBC1
The Holby City hospital crew are back with a heart-stoppingly good two-parter, which opens with staff nurse Sam Colloby lying in a pool of blood on the floor - remember that when the last series ended in March, he was plunging backward over the balcony railings on to the crowded casualty reception below. The serious head injuries he sustains devastate his friends and colleagues and it is this storyline that dominates the programme.
That's not to say there aren't several other equally gripping stories going on, including the one about Sean, Chloe and Tina; their friendship is severely strained -not surprisingly - since Tina found out that best mate Chloe was pregnant by Tina's lover Sean. There's also an almost incidental accident that will have a huge effect on the next episode, which airs tomorrow.

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.
