: Horizon: Three Score Years and then...

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

An old lady, frail, nearly blind, crippled by arthritis, living alone in slum conditions. As someone typical of so many of our 6 1/2 million elderly, just what kind of life can she expect today?
Geriatrics, the care of old people, has never been a popular branch of medicine. Lacking both money and status it has constantly had to fight for a place in the priorities of our medical services. But using new treatments the country's small army of 250 geriatricians has recently been able to send home more and more patients to resume a normal life. It is in itself an encouraging story, but some believe that geriatrics is solving one problem only to create another. Can the community cope with increasing numbers who, because of modern medicine, are living longer than ever before?
Tonight's programme looks at the efforts being made to keep the elderly healthy, out of hospital and independent.

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.
