: Television Doctor: Losing Weight

Are you overweight? Are you considerably overweight? Are you taking a risk with your life?
A nutrition expert analyses the meal ordered by a lorry driver in a transport cafe - 'pie and chips, steamed pudding and custard, tea with two sugars' - very tasty but very rich in starch and sugar. Anyone who eats this all the time will not only get fat but will have two-and-a-half times the normal risk of premature death from heart disease.
Along with other heavyweights Robert Bridges, the stage and television actor, talks about his eating habits and 22 stone figure.

: Horizon: Cancer Now

This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today.

If you develop a cancer now what is your chance of survival? If you develop a cancer 10 years from now, how much better will your chances be? What return are we getting for the money spent on cancer research? The Americans spend about 20 times as much on it as we do: is this producing more results? Or do we really need more and better ideas? The 'causes' of cancer include radiation, viruses, chemicals: year by year the list of hazards around us seems to grow. But what do we mean by 'cause'? And what do we mean by 'cure'? Tonight Horizon reports on a situation where 75 years of research have produced a flood of detail, and some of the answers; but where every small advance seems to pose even more questions.

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.
