: Doctors' Dilemmas: 2: The Vicar's Daughter

Doctors are often forced to make moral judgments when they treat us. In a series of six stories based on true cases, Ian Kennedy, Director of the Centre for Law, Medicine and Ethics, examines the principles that guide them.
Jenny is 15 and pregnant. She wants an abortion and does not want her parents to know anything about it. Dr Derrick Bolsover, an Oxfordshire GP, demonstrates how he would tackle Jenny's problem if she were one of his patients.
In the studio, the ethics of the case are discussed by Dr Sheila Abdullah, a Liverpool GP, Barbara Chandler, a Pregnancy Advisory Counsellor, and Madeleine Simms, a medical sociologist.

: Arena: Classically Cuban: Alicia Alonso and the Cuban National Ballet

Today, in post-revolutionary Cuba, under the benign patronage of Fidel Castro, classical ballet thrives. This unlikely success story is mainly due to the legendary figure of Alicia Alonso. After almost 20 years as an internationally acclaimed star of the American ballet, she returned to support the Revolution in 1959, determined to create from scratch a national ballet company. Now aged over 60, her long career frequently threatened by failing eyesight, Alicia Alonso is still Cuba's prima ballerina, still performing Giselle and still the formidable leader of a huge company of dancers, all of them now trained and recruited within Cuba.

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.
