: Doctors' Dilemmas

A series of six programmes in which Ian Kennedy , Reader in Law at King's College, London, examines the principles that guide doctors when they treat us. 5: The Trial
When a new treatment is developed, it is tested on a group of the sick people it is designed to help. Should they always be volunteers, consenting freely and knowing fully all the possible hazards and benefits?
For this programme, Prof Norman Bleehen, of Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, designed a clinical trial aimed at helping patients seriously ill with lung cancer. Their fully informed consent was not to be sought. Prof Bleehen 's proposal is discussed by Dr Peter Emerson and Prof Christopher Wastell of the Westminster Hospital and Mrs Jean Robinson , a lay member of the General Medical Council.

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.
