Killer in the Village
In over 1,000 men so far, collapse of the immune system has been followed by bizarre killer infections or rapidly spreading cancers; hundreds have already died. The underlying disease is AIDS - Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome-but some call it 'the Gay Plague '. The greatest toll has been among homosexual men who live in and around Greenwich Village in New York-but it is now spreading in other groups: Haitians, heroin addicts, haemophiliacs, even some women and babies. This medical detective story traces its spread across America, observes the search for a cause and cure, and asks: have the seeds of a spreading epidemic already reached London?
Narrated by 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.

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.
