: Horizon: Rheumatism

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

Only one person in every 50 people that read this will escape some form of rheumatism before their 70th birthday. Apart from the personal agony, these diseases cost the economy more in lost work than all our strikes put together, yet it's an under-funded, under-researched and little understood group of diseases.

Under the label of 'rheumatism' there are about 70 different diseases: arthritis, gout, slipped discs, lumbago, sciatica and so on. No single film could deal with all of them; what this film does is to show you what happens in some of the commoner kinds, and (where it's known) why it happens and what can be done about it. Where the answers aren't known, then the cameras went to the laboratories from which the answers will come.

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.
