Your Health in Their Hands
More people are turning to healers outside the medical establishment for treatment.
Now, different factions are emerging among the healers themselves. Some use psychic powers, others believe that illness is caused by the devil and that the casting out of demons is the only answer. Nick Stuart investigates the claims of the healers, talking to their critics and to their patients. Producer Nick Stuart

: Taking Liberties

The investigative series.
Surplus to Requirements. When Spain closed the border with Gibraltar in 1969 and recalled its nationals, the British authorities faced a labour crisis.
They solved it by importing thousands of workers from nearby Morocco.
Twenty-three years later, many of those men and women still live on the Rock. But they are treated as second-class citizens, living in squalid conditions, on temporary work permits and denied basic human rights. Now, after a lifetime of loyalty to the British and Gibraltarian authorities, they face the threat of deportation. David Jessel asks why those who were once vital to our national interests are now being quietly discarded. Producer Kevin Sutcliffe
Series producer Steve Haywood

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.
