: Television Doctor: Phobias

Are you afraid of spiders? Do open spaces terrify you? Would you panic if the lift stopped between floors? What do you feel about tall buildings-or pigeons? Irrational fears confine thousands of people to their homes. If they leave the house, they may suffer panic, faintness, and palpitations. Why people get phobias and what can be done to help them are among the points discussed in the programme by two psychiatrists.

: Horizon: Problems of Pain

'Pain is not purely physical' (a doctor)
'The only thing I know about pain is that it hurts like hell' (a patient)
'I think that the relief of pain is what medicine is all about' (a doctor)
Pain is usually thought of as a purely physical problem, something that a pill or an injection will relieve. But new research work suggests that pain is closely connected with personality, mood, and psychology. How we think can profoundly affect how we feel. Some of the doctors in this programme believe it may be time to reconsider the place of pain relief in the order of medical priorities, and to devote more effort to understanding the problems of pain

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.
