: The Philpott File

Trevor Philpott reports on The Hospital: 2: The Sisters
Florence Nightingale is dead. Dedication doesn' buy the groceries or pay the rent.
This is the kind of talk we've been hearing from the militant members of the nursing profession throughout the year. The nurses are due to get a new pay deal any day now.
But the most vital need is not to increase the pay of students and juniors but to offer sufficient rewards to career nurses, the ones who are prepared to spend years in the profession and upon whom the harmony and efficiency of the hospitals rests so heavily.
The Sisters is a study of five such nurses; the remarkable demands made upon them by the modern hospital, modern equipment and modern consultants; and of their attitude to their work and to their patients.

: The Entertainers: 2: Hello, are you coming to the show?

The Great Lowland Touring Company is a group of students from Edinburgh. This summer they revived the long-standing tradition of the Highland Tour, visiting remote Scottish villages with a play - an obscure medieval farce called Gammer Gurton's Needle.
As the film follows their increasingly battered blue bus from village to village, their concern slowly shifts from the problems of local reaction to the more difficult ones inside the group. As they go for days on little sleep or food, it's hardly surprising that for every burst of excitement they experience a corresponding low. Inevitably they are left wondering who benefits from the tour, themselves or the audience.

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.
