: Man Alive: Heart Attack: 1: U.S.A.

A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives
Reporters: Jim Douglas Henry, Jeremy James, Jeanne La Chard, Gillian Strickland, Desmond Wilcox, Harold Williamson

This week: Heart Attack: 1: U.S.A.
A third of the people who die in this country in the next twelve months will be killed by some form of heart failure or heart disease-200,000 men and women. The heart attack has become this country's biggest premature killer.
It's the same story in all countries like ours where the pace takes its toll on the individual. In the United States more than a million and a half Americans will suffer a heart attack in the next twelve months. Six hundred thousand of them will die-one a minute around the clock. Now there is hope that this toll can be reduced. In the States they are pioneering new methods. But in this country we're not far behind (indeed, in some respects we may even be ahead). In two programmes Man Alive looks first at the situation in America.

: Television Doctor: Ulcers

Ulcers are not particularly a disease of the top executive; people in many kinds of jobs suffer from them.
A gastric or duodenal ulcer causes a breakdown of the lining of the stomach or intestine. But as far as the patient is concerned he has indigestion, pain or discomfort. Some form of sensible diet, and eating little and often, plus the use of a simple antacid will often be treatment enough.
Occasionally surgery is necessary either as an emergency operation, for example, where an ulcer has perforated, or where drugs have failed to help and a patient's symptoms continue.
In tonight's programme the Consultant Physician discusses ulcers with a specialist in the subject, a General Practitioner and a Professor of Surgery.

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.

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.
