: Natural Concern

Katy's Birthday
There's nothing more natural than giving birth, but the manner in which
Katy Gribble was delivered was rather unusual. She was born at home, in front of the living room fire, underwater, in a birthing tub. Of course, Mum was in the tub, but so was Dad; he had the important job of rubbing Mum's back. Dr Lichy kept an eye on the proceedings. He's performed over 40 underwater deliveries around the Penzance area of Cornwall. On a cold night in January, he brought his tub to the Gribble household ...

: Top Gear

William Woollard presents the first of the autumn series from the Paris Motor Show. Long one of the most prestigious venues for the world's motor manufacturers to show off their latest products, it benefits greatly from France having a very strong domestic car industry. Tom Boswell , a new recruit to the team, reflects on the constantly changing fortunes of that country's two mighty domestic producers -
Peugeot Citroen and Renault. Chris Goffey road tests the most important new model at the show - the Renault 19 and, on its 40th birthday,
Beki Adam looks back at that most typical of French cars - the Citroen 2CV.
Plus a look at some of the problems that motorists have to contend with in France. Producer JON BENTLEY

The producers wish to make it clear that this programme has nothing to do with Janet Street-Porter , contains absolutely no in-depth interviews with Kylie
Minogue and was not shot by a cameraman who finds standing up difficult.
However, if you're under 30, you can still watch it - and enjoy the brilliant comedy and impressions of Phil Cool. Written by PHIL COOL PAUL ALEXANDER

: A Picture of Health

Last in the series on the history of the NHS
The Elephant Trundles On The 70s and 80s have been two decades of disruption. Doctors, nurses, hospital workers and even consultants have taken industrial action. At the Elephant and Castle, the DHSS headquarters, there have been rows about costs, cuts, paybeds, privatisation and management.
The Rt Hon Sir Kenneth Robinson , the Rt Hon Barbara Castle, MEP the Rt Hon Dr David Owen , MP, and the Rt Hon Norman Fowler , MP, all former health ministers, recall the ferocious rows.
Meanwhile, the NHS gets better: more services are available, stays in hospital are shorter, people live longer, healthier lives. The
Prime Minister's forthcoming special review of the NHS promises more argument. Is this the inevitable price we pay for the modern NHS? Film editor TIM CRAVEN Written and produced by SIMON CAMPBELLJONES

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.
