: Horizon

A Question of Trust
1 It's absolutely vital that whatever magic potions we are applying to the patient, the patient believes in them. If we were to lose the confidence of the patient, we'd have lost our greatest asset in medicine.' Most doctors would agree with the Professor of Obstetrics who said this. Trust in the doctor benefits the patient-but what safeguards does the patient have? Jennifer Carr , aged 30, trusted her doctor - and the treatment he prescribed made her blind.
In the USA attempts are made to solve the problem - but can the medical profession be controlled without being hindered? Lord Denning once said that a doctor who was held liable for every mistake, ' instead of getting on with his work, would forever be looking over his shoulder to see if someone was coming up with a dagger.' This view is fair to the doctor, but is it fair to the patient? Has the patient no other choice but trust? Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN

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.
