: Almost Human: Is Your Dog Worth £4?

How to live with animals and look after them with Di Fisher and Peter West.

It can cost up to £4 to inoculate a young dog or cat against every kind of fatal infection. Is it worth it? Could the vaccine be cheaper? If twelve more dog owners in every hundred had their puppies inoculated, distemper and other fatal diseases would disappear from Britain.
Many vets want dog licences to cost more and to include a compulsory injection. But do dog owners agree?

: The Expert: The Unknown Factor

by N.J. Crisp
Starring Marius Goring
with Ann Morrish and Victor Winding, Michael Farnsworth, Sally Nesbitt
Guest star, Valerie White
See page 26

A forensic expert can become involved in crime in many ways. Often he will act for the police, but there are times when he can be called in by other interested parties. Dr. John Hardy is no exception and even when he has no particular liking for the people employing him he will always ferret out the facts. When these facts do not prove to be advantageous to his clients he can find himself in a difficult position.
Three bullets, a dead man, and £50,000 in insurance - this is the background to tonight's episode. Troubles arise when Dr. Hardy discovers the Unknown Factor.

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.
