9 : Down in the Caves
Caves are essential to the maintenance of life on a coral reef. Not only do they have their own, sometimes bizarre, inhabitants but other animals depend on caves for rest and security.

: Man Alive: Out of Sight, Out of Mind 1: Up in Middlewood

Reporters: Jeremy James, Jeanne Lachard, John Pitman, Jack Pizzey, Desmond Wilcox, Harold Williamson
This week:
Middlewood Hospital on the outskirts of Sheffield was built 100 years ago as the South Yorkshire Lunatic Asylum.
Today it is a typical psychiatric hospital: too big, understaffed, housing many patients, who are only there because they have nowhere else to go. There are 1,300 patients in Middlewood, many of them living in 50 bed, long-stay wards, staffed only by two overworked nurses.
Each year over 150,000 people are admitted to mental hospitals. Most will be treated in institutions like Middlewood.
In the first of a two-part enquiry into the treatment of mental illness - the 'Cinderella of the Social Services' - Gordon Snell looks at Middlewood Hospital and its staff, struggling to provide some sort of psychiatric first-aid. Next week's programme looks at new approaches to the definition and treatment of mental illness.

: Midweek Cinema: Saratoga Trunk

starring Gary Cooper
Ingrid Bergman , Flora Robson
When she returns to New Orleans in 1875, Clio Dulaine, a beautiful adventuress, has two aims: to avenge the wrongs her mother suffered at the hands of fashionable society and to find herself a rich husband. But, in spite of herself, she falls in love with Clint Maroon, a Texas cowboy with a flair for gambling, and the pair journey to Saratoga, with its millionaires and gaming tables, to seek their fortunes.
Ingrid Bergman and Gary Cooper r.enew the partnership that had begun so successfully in For Whom The BelL Tolls in this screen version of Edna Ferber's romantic best-seller.

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.

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.
