: Man Alive: Cancer - Not the Last Report

Reporters Jim Douglas Henry, Jeremy James, Jeanne La Chard, Gillian Strickland, Denis Tuohy, Desmond Wilcox, Harold Williamson

One of the greatest problems facing doctors in their efforts to fight cancer is that the word itself is synonymous with death and suffering. The depressing side of this disease gets plenty of publicity. We all know someone who has died of cancer.

Yet it is estimated that 30,000 people are cured of cancer every year in this country. Many of them are unaware that they have suffered from an attack of it because they have never been told. Others, because of the conspiracy of silence, never talk of it. Tonight on Man Alive five ex-cancer patients who have been successfully treated, talk about their experiences. No man faces cancer unmoved, but all the contributors in tonight's programme look forward to their futures with confidence and hope.

: Yesterday's Witness: The Last People of St Kilda

On 29 August 1930, the most isolated community in the British Isles leapt into the headlines. The island of St Kilda had been evacuated. A hundred and ten miles from the Scottish mainland, cut off and ignored, her tiny population had been struggling to survive. Finally they had given up.

In tonight's film four of the islanders, the resident nurse, and the missionary's daughter describe life on the island in those last years and the events which led up to the evacuation.

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.
