: Horizon: A Case of Priority

This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today.
Who gets the priority - the man needing an artificial kidney machine, the cost and maintenance of which will run into thousands of pounds; the old person whose support, in brutal economic terms, is money down the drain; or the woman with a mild phobia whose house becomes a prison until she's treated? Modern medicine presents growing problems, and actually creates them by enabling old people to live longer and by saving the lives of some children who only 10 years ago would have died at birth: such children often need expensive aftercare for the rest of their lives, yet it seems unthinkable to let them die.
This week's Horizon focuses on the problems of priority, seeing how they affect one community.

: The Glory That Remains The Forgotten Kingdom

The fifth of six programmes In which Robert Erskine seeks to recapture ancient times.
The remains of the mysterious Kingdom of Kush lie dotted about in the Sudanese desert. Its ruined temples and pyramids signify the influence of Egypt; and later on, a few imported objects indicate that Roman traders ultimately penetrated to this distant land. But at heart Kush remained an African civilisation, cut off from its great neighbours by the Nile cataracts: a bizarre Negro kingdom whose isolation even intrigued antiquity.

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.
