Health and Efficiency
The Government wants better value for money in the NHS. To get it, a manager from Selfridges has been put in charge of the biggest hospital in Oxford. He arrives with high-street business attitudes, determined to save money and make further spending cuts.
But, as Gerry Northam reports, he finds doctors, nurses and ancillary staff complaining that services have already been cut too far; the unions are refusing to work on a new ward for private patients; and even emergency patients have to wait more than three hours for an empty hospital bed.
Can the man from Selfridges make the hospital more efficient? Or have its standards of care already fallen dangerously low?

Come Home, Julie
At the age of 8, Julie Lartey was snatched from the couple who had fostered her since she was a few days old and smuggled out of Britain to Ghana. The snatch - made by her real parents - had a devastating effect on the foster parents - Evelyn Vose. now aged 70, and her husband Bill, who is 80. John Pitman told their story in a BBC film in 1976. Now Julie wants to come home to them. She can't tell her parents - will the Voses help?
They decide to spend their life-savings on a ticket, but never hear whether she has received it. They go to the airport not knowing whether Julie will be on the plane. If she isn't, they will go through all the heartache again. If she is, will they be able to pick up where they left off ten years ago? Reporter John Pitman Photography TONY BRAGG and NIGEL MEAKIN

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
