This week: VD - Who Cares?
An epidemic that, say critics of national policies, is being swept under the carpet. One person in every 200 today attends a venereal disease clinic. VD has become the second highest notifiable disease after measles. More alarming is the spread of the disease among the young - girls of 15-21 and boys from 19-24. Figures for gonorrhoea alone are 14 times higher among the under-25s than among the over-25s. Some people are beginning to ask - is this epidemic the price of the permissive society?
Jeremy James and a Man Alive film team have talked to patients and doctors at the clinics to discover how an undermanned and outdated part of the National Health Service is coping with the situation. In the studio parents, youngsters, doctors and patients, as well as health educationalists, discuss what needs to be done.

: This Sporting Life

Tonight's film in this season of British films by some of the distinguished directors and writers who brought a new style to the cinema in the 60s. starring
Richard Harris , Rachel Roberts with Alan Badel
William Hartnell , Colin Blakely
The progress of Rugby League player Frank Machin is a chronicle of jubilation and despair. His success on the field is not matched in his private life with his unsuccessful attempts to win the trust and affection of an introverted widow.
Writer David Storey , director Lindsay Anderson , producer Karel Reisz , and actors Rachel Roberts and Richard Harris are in perfect harmony in this brilliant tale of an impossible love affair set in a northern industrial town.
There are some remarkable supporting performances from Alan Badel and and his wife who sponsor Machin, and Director LINDSAY ANDERSON

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.
