Widows of War
For thousands of families in Britain, Remembrance
Sunday is not enough. This film features four women who lost their husbands during very different conflicts but they share the same feelings of futility and isolation at the loss of their loved ones. Left to fend for themselves on meagre pensions, many war widows have been fighting their own very personal battles to this day. Suggested by a letter from a war widow, this moving film is a tribute to their courage.

Open Space is the series where the public make programmes under their own editorial control helped by the Community Programme Unit

: The Courage to Fail

A five-part series on the pioneers of modern surgery Nerves of Steel
Imagine the scene. 1830 - a smoke-filled room, crowded with spectators. Their eyes are fixed on a man, restrained on a wooden table, with a leg ravaged by gangrene. The surgeon enters. Without anaesthetics, without blood transfusion and with no knowledge of infection, he will amputate the leg in 30 seconds.
Today surgeons can operate safely on the brain and the heart, on the elderly and on babies only a few hours old. The story of this remarkable transformation begins with a historic operation on a boy, Gilbert Abbott. What made his operation special was that, unlike all patients before him, he felt no pain.

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.
