: Three of a Kind

Presented by Jeremy Isaacs.
Professionals wield a great deal of power. What motivates them? What attitudes and ideas lurk behind their job titles? To whom are they accountable? Psychiatrists with Dr Jeremy Holmes Dr Timothy Crow and Dr Brenda Morris. Tonight Jeremy Isaacs confronts the professional world of three psychiatrists. One woman in six and one man in nine will spend some time in a psychiatric ward. Millions more need psychiatric help as outpatients and live off repeat prescriptions for antidepressants and tranquillisers. Few are permanently cured.
Psychiatric knowledge is riven with dissent. Just how do psychiatrists justify their diverse treatments? Director DAVID CROSSMAN Producer UDI EICHLER

: Alexei Sayle's Stuff

Dobsey Twins Isolate Radium

Dear Radio Times,
Congratulations, the BBC, on producing a real winner with Alexei Sayle's Stuff. My two daughters and I have only one complaint: since we still possess a 405-line television set, we find the constant references to 'fat b*****d' somewhat baffling as the gentleman on our screen is in fact rather slender and well proportioned. Is this a joke for the benefit of 625-line viewers? If so, don't you think you should spare a thought for all of your audience?
Mrs L. Minnow, Lincolnshire
Alexei Sayle replies: Who gives a damn what you think?

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.
