: Casualty: Little White Lies

Comfort faces a potentially traumatic task, while Ellen has a proposition for Abs.

[web address removed]

MEDICAL DRAMA Casualty 8.50pm BBC1
It's extraordinary how, in just one episode of Casualty, there can be scenes that are so affecting they can move you to tears, immediately followed by ones that make you snort in disbelief.
Tonight, for instance, Comfort has to identify her husband Fin's dead body and the howl of grief she emits at the sight of him is enough to make you sick with sympathy. But moments later we're drawn into a love triangle story where the "wronged" party not only behaves in an unbelievably reasonable manner towards his roving fiancee but then, having been told by daft new doctor Guppy that everything's going to be OK, accepts the news that one of his relatives may be brain dead and equally calmly agrees to organ donation.
He's obviously had a heart bypass operation to remove his emotions, but then so have the other corners of the love triangle, all more concerned with who did what to whom than with the poor soul attached to the ventilator.
On top of this, Luke's sharing his home with the widow of a man he "killed" some episodes back (just let the guilt go, Luke) and that manipulative minx Ellen has a proposition for Abs. He's such an affable chap he'll probably say yes just to be nice. (Jane Rackham)

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.

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.
