Local hospitals close. Local services are cut. And all over the country there are public protests. How responsive are the NHS bureaucrats to the real needs of the people they are supposed to serve?
A brand-new hospital opens in Liverpool-but it costs more to run with fewer beds than the five local hospitals closed to make way for it. Liverpool residents are angry but they can look with satisfaction to the four hospitals they have kept open through public action. They ask
Whose Health Service is it?
This is the fifth of six programmes giving a local issue a national airing.

: The Myth of the Mound Builders

The sixth of seven Chronicle films Groups of astonishing man-made earthworks - ramparts, embankments, ditches and mounds are scattered throughout Ohio, Illinois, and the Mississippi valley in America. Early white settlers told stories of a brilliant civilisation which had once flourished there and which built the mounds before sweeping south to found the Aztec and the Toltec cultures of Mexico. The settlers refused to accept that the ancestors of the local Indians were responsible for the mounds.
Today archaeologists have solved the mystery of the mound builders and revealed a fascinating picture of the way these Indians lived and the purpose of their astonishing earth works.

: Personal Pleasures with Sir Hugh Casson

A series of six programmes
5: Ruskin - at Coniston in the Lake District
For 50 years John Ruskin dominated the art world of his time, famous for his writing on architecture, art and philosophy. Throughout an incredibly full life of travel and authorship he was drawing all the time. '... There is a strong instinct in me, which I cannot analyse, to draw and describe the things I love ... an instinct like that for eating and drinking.'
It is Ruskin's drawings that take Sir Hugh Casson to Coniston to see the collections in the Ruskin Museum and at Brantwood, the house where Ruskin lived for the last 30 years of his life.

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.
