: I Want to be a Doctor

A documentary programme for television.
Written and produced by Michael Barry.
Among those taking part are - Basil Dawson, Milton Rosmer, Andrew Osborn, Jeannette Tregarthen, Una Venning, H. G. Stoker, Ronald Long, Stafford Byrne, Richard Shayne, Paul Martin, Morris Sweden, John Warner, Norman Webb, Merelina Watts, Richard Pearson, Marguerite Young, John Gatrell, Adrian Waller, Victor Platt, Hugh Paddick, Frederick Davies, Sheila Raynor, and Stuart Latham. The narrator is Andre van Gyseghem.
Acknowledgments are due to: Dr. Douglas Guthrie, F.R.C.S.Ed., F.R.S.E.; Dr. Ronald MacKeith, D.M., Oxford, M.R.C.P., and the Scientific Film Society; the Dean of the Medical College and the Governors and Staff of St. Bartholomew's Hospital; and the Wellcome Historical Medical Museum, for help and guidance in the preparation of this programme.

At present many young men and women want to be doctors - far more than the medical schools can take. This programme shows what happens to the student who does gain admittance, and attempts to outline the tradition of medical teaching describing the legacy of knowledge that is handed from generation to generation. Only a few of the many great names can be remembered. Among them are Joseph Lister, Louis Pasteur, Edward Jenner, John Hunter, Laennec, Ambroise Pare, Vesalius, Galen, and Hippocrates.
Second performance of the programme of May 20

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.
