Artists in Residence
'If you want a comfortable, secure life, being an artist has to be one of the worst ways of going about it.'
Philip Stanley
Most of the residents of Beck Road in East London are artists. For ten years they've been able to concentrate on their work in the terraced houses which provide them with homes and studios. But now the street which they rescued from dereliction is to be sold.
In this film they argue that the future of contemporary art in Britain is closely tied in with the future of Beck Road.
Open Space is the series where the public can make programmes under their own editorial control helped by the Community Programme Unit.

: Doctors to Be

Welcome to the Real World The last of three Horizon programmes
It's remarkable how little I know considering how long I've been studying medicine. For the first time, the surviving medical students of the class of 85 are coming face to face with patients, in the 'real world' of a surgical ward at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington.
How well have their two years of training prepared them to communicate with a recent stroke victim or to talk helpfully to a man with terminal cancer? And there are other challenges, like presenting a patient's history well enough to satisfy the exacting standards of the professor of surgery.
Then, a mere two months after leaving the shelter of the medical school, they're plunged into the very real world of a night shift in casualty.

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.
