This week:
Last of three programmes about trouble in our universities
Violence and shouting; waving placards and charging police-horses; headlines and loud hailers: the academic life sometimes seems more like a running riot Puzzled parents, resentful taxpayers, worried university staff, and sixth-formers uncertainly facing an undergraduate future which may contain as many sit-downs as seminars. We hear the roar of student unrest, but does the noise make sense? Are there any words to listen to? What should a university education mean in 1969? With just a handful of parents, students, and vice-chancellors (the men in the hot seats at universities) Man Alive tries to find out.
Producer, TOM CoNWAY
Postponed from April 23

The word ' rheumatism' is used to describe all sorts of painful conditions of the muscles, bones, and joints. Tonight's programme discusses diseases of the joints and in particular rheumatoid arthritis and osteo-arthritis, which is now known as osteo-arthrosis.
These common diseases are often mild but can be completely crippling. In the old days many patients who suffered from them became barely able to move, but nowadays methods of treatment have improved so much that they can often live active healthy lives.
The treatment of these two diseases can involve a combination of skills, using drugs and in some cases surgery.
To describe these treatments the Consultant Physician is joined by a Consultant Rheumatologist and an Orthopaedic Surgeon.

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.
