: Doctors to Be

Trial by Interview
First of three nightly Horizon programmes
The worst ten minutes of my life.... You can list things like: 'It brings in good money.' That sounds so greedy.
Two sixth-formers face the ordeal of an interview which will win or lose them a place at medical school. In just 15 minutes, they have to convince a panel that they've got what it takes to make a good doctor. Each year, there are more than 2,000 applicants for the 100 places at St Mary's Hospital Medical School. One in five are chosen for interview, and it's not so much academic ability but personality that will be tested. But what is the right personality for a doctor - and can you detect it at 17 or 18?

: The Film Club: Salvatore Giuliano

Francesco Rosi
Mike Newell, director of "Dance with a Stranger", introduces Francesco Rosi's portrait of a violent society.

Starring Frank Wolff, Salvo Randone.

Salvatore Giuliano lies dead in a courtyard. The carabinieri claim he was shot on the run, but only one thing seems certain: Giuliano was betrayed. In exposing the complex story of the bandit who came to be mythologised as a modern Robin Hood,
Francesco Rosi lays bare the roots of Sicily's turbulent history since the war, a history still dominated by the Mafia despite strenuous efforts by the state.

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.
