Weather followed by Into Orbis
Forty-two million people are blind and millions more have diseases which can lead to blindness. But Orbis, a converted jet, manned by volunteer surgeons and nurses, is one response to this terrible problem.
The programme joins this 'Flying MASH' team in Bangladesh, and follows them as they share their skills with local doctors, often learning from their hosts as well. Then, this medical circus flies on to Thailand, Nepal and Iraq. In much of the world, the blind rate a very low place in a nation's priorities. So, often the mere arrival of the shining white eye-hospital attracts the interests of national rulers. Orbis changes attitudes.

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.
