: Horizon: Don't Get Sick in America

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

First shown by CBS on American television earlier this year as a two-part documentary, the New York Times commented on tonight's film: 'A biting series, documented with vivid detail... will raise a formidable howl from the medical profession.'
The film provides a chance to compare our much-maligned Health Service with an alternative service. Until now Americans have chosen to receive, and pay for, their medical treatment privately. But in the face of a national shortage of doctors and rapidly rising prices, the private enterprise system seems to be in danger of breaking down.
Tonight's Horizon examines some of the nightmarish situations that have developed in this system, and shows that more and more Americans, fearing illness more for what it might do to their bank balances than to their bodies, are looking enviously at the free universal treatment - for all its shortcomings - enjoyed under national health services like our own.

: Children Talking: Gambling

Do you play life safe or take chances? Gerald Harrison finds some of the answers from children in the town that makes its living from horses - Newmarket.

It's surprising how many Newmarket youngsters have 'gotta horse' in spirit, if not in the flesh. They've the eye of an experienced tipster when it comes to things like picking a winner, the merits of Lester Piggott's riding, how to whip a horse, gambling fever among parents, and whether we should have a gamble in the way we tackle life.

: Yesterday's Witness: Levant Mine Disaster

On Monday 20 October 1919, disaster hit the little villages of St Just and Pendeen, near Land's End. Thirty-one men were lost in an accident which has been described as Cornwall's worst mining tragedy within living memory.
Almost every household in the neighbourhood lost a relative. Shocked Cornishmen all over the world contributed money to help widows and orphans in the stricken villages.

"It takes a programme like this with its immediate truthful dialogue to remind you of just how far we have come in so short a time. And how things have improved." (Daily Mirror)

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.
