: The Philpott File: The Hospital: Crisis at Guy's

Trevor Philpott reports.
This summer British hospitals have been turned into industrial battlefields. The unthinkable happened. Vital members of the medical teams, technicians, radiographers, even nurses have refused to attend the sick in order to man picket lines and stage lightning strikes. Within a fortnight. the Halsbury Report is to be published, and has promised to end 30 years of neglect.
For two months Trevor Philpott and his team have been filming at one of Britain's most famous teaching hospitals. Crisis at Guy's is the first of four reports.

: The Entertainers

' So there we have it. Ireland's number one male singer, number one female singer, and top band ... Nevada! '
All the Best Years of my Life
Tonight's film is the first of three that goes on the road with groups of successful musicians, actors and acrobats.
The fact that Nevada regularly top the Irish charts and pack every dance hall from Bantry to Ballymena does not mean thev have the easiest of lives. Their fame is rooted in the hard grind of rehearsal, travel, performance. Five days a week they cross and recross Ireland, North and South, always expected to give cheerfully of their best. The Entertainers follows them through a typical week.

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.
