' This Yankee Dodge beats Mesmerism Hollow'
- the Story of Anaesthetics.
Every day several thousand patients take it for granted they will sleep during surgery and be unaware of pain. Yet only 130 years ago there was no anaesthesia. Operations were put off until the choice lay between surgery and death. On two occasions English scientists were on the brink of the discovery but failed to follow it through. It was left to an American dentist to get there first.
Today the anaesthetist is no longer the rag and bottle man. He is a skilled technician with a wide choice of gases and drugs. He is also the man who looks after the patient in the operating theatre and protects him during surgery. The programme follows an anaesthetist as he cares for a patient in an operation lasting seven hours. Narrator WILLIAM FRANKLYN

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.
