: Doctors to Be

The Knowledge
Second of three Horizon programmes
The hardest task I have each year is saying goodbye to those students whovefailed their pre-clinical exams.
DEAN OF ST MARY'S
MEDICAL SCHOOL
It's October 1985, and in the excitement of getting into medical school none of the successful candidates really believes they could be among next year's failures.
But they're still a long way from contact with patients. Ahead of them lie two years of academic grind. Through dissection of the human body they learn to distinguish their jugular notch from their xiphysternum. Later, they'll spend sleepless nights trying to master physiology and biochemistry.
As the exams loom it becomes clear that some of them will fail to convince the examiners that they have managed to acquire 'the knowledge'. Narrator Paul Vaughan

: Discoveries Underwater

Last of an eight-part series Science, Salvage or Scrap?
Narrated by Tim Pigott-Smith More new discoveries have been made underwater in the last 25 years than ever before. Unique aeroplanes, submarines and great ships - like the Titanic. What should be done with them? Salvage them for scrap or save them as historic monuments? In Scapa Flow, every year, the Royal Navy conducts a service of remembrance over one of Britain's biggest war graves - HMS Royal Oak.
At Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, is a similar emotive war grave - the battleship USS Arizona. The island of Guam in the middle of the Pacific was the scene of some of the fiercest fighting in the Second World War. There, a Japanese cargo ship, sunk in 1944, lies alongside a German auxiliary cruiser, sunk in 1917. A unique memorial to two world wars.

: Tibet and the God-King

When the Chinese army consolidated its invasion of Tibet in 1959, His Holiness
Tenzin Gyatso escaped over the Himalayas and into exile. Since then he has been travelling the world, and putting Tibet's case to anyone who will listen, in an attempt to gain freedom for his country.
The exiled god-king, the 14th Dalai Lama , believed by millions of devotees to be the reincarnation of the Compassionate Buddha, reveals to Bernard Levin his feelings about Tibet's plight and about his own destiny as man, monk and monarch. Can he ever return to a country now dominated by atheistic communist rule, or should he stay abroad allowing Tibet to forget its timeless traditions and move into the future with 21st-century China?

: Elysee 88

A Telejournal special with Chantal Cuer
Who will occupy the French presidential palace for the next seven years? Chantal Cuer brings you the latest results of the first-round eliminating ballot - as shown on the Antenne Deux election-night programme.
Chantal analyses the results with experts in London and Paris and tries to assess who is likely to become the president of the Fifth
Republic after the final ballot in a fortnight's time.
There's also a look at the poster war on the French billboards, the 'beauty' contest between the candidates on television and the role of the press and the polls in an election campaign organised very differently from those in Britain. Director MARK LUCAS Assistant producer DANIELLA DANGOOR
Producer BERNARD ADAMS (e)

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.
