Writer Jake Riddell; Producer Jane Wallbank; Director
James Larkin More cast page 126 [web address removed]

Today's Choices
Drama Holby City 8.00pm BBC1
Post-Christmas and Holby City Hospital is brimming over with joy and goodwill to all men. Yeah, right. In fact, most of the staff have got the hump: Maria's so busy moping over Sam she manages to lose a patient with dementia and "turbo slippers"; Mark is spitting blood about the number of staff who are absent; and Ric is not only struggling to treat a man who's picked up something in the Balkans (sounds painful), but also has to decide what to do when the mother of his grandson asks for his help.
Only Linden has reason to be happy because his coma patient miraculously wakes up. Even so, by the time the credits roll to the sound of Elton John's Sacrifice, you may feel decidedly joyless yourself. 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.
