: Fight for Life

New series 1/6. The dramatic inside story of how the human body triumphs over adversity. Tonight two-hour-old Gabriel is rushed to Great Ormond Street
Hospital after inhaling his own excretion in the womb and a caesarean section takes a turn for the worse when the team discover the umbilical cord wrapped around the baby's neck. Andrew Lincoln narrates. Series producer Kate Beetham ; Executive producer Jessica Cecil

Fight for Life (9.00pm BBC1) not only captures compelling medical dramas, it also shows what's happening inside the human body. Patients were filmed, and internal images of the human body, like this view of the spinal cord (right), were created using computer software. Then there's footage inside the body's organs (they're for real, using, mainly, the organs of dead pigs!). "We want viewers to marvel at the resilience of the human body," says producer Kate Beetham. "The doctors are heroes in all our stories but so, too, we think, is the body."
Fight for Life 9.00pm Human nature: bodies may change but we share an overwhelming instinct to try and overcome injury

FIGHT FOR LIFE Investigating how babies' bodies work is more than child's play
SCIENCE Fight for Life 9.00pm BBC1
Tiny babies fighting for life is an upsetting business, but that's the idea here: again and again we see newborns on the brink, poised between new life and extinction. The worst part is when the little pink bundles turn blue, and doctors and nurses swarm round them, shoving in tubes and needles. "Breathe!" you find yourself yelling, and mostly, thankfully, they do.
What marks the series out from other hospital docs is that we don't just see what's happening on the outside. The cameras keep swooping into the babies' bodies, apparently burrowing through arteries and organs with a squishy sound like drain clearing. It's all done with special effects, obviously, but it doesn't half liven up the story. You may get fed up with Andrew Lincoln's narration, and one effects shot of baby lungs is used about 27 times, but it's a good mix of graphic and gripping. (David Butcher)

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.
