: Personal Best

Scottish sprinter
Cameron Sharp was approaching the peak of his athletic career when a car crash left him unable to walk, barely able to talk. His slow, painful but determined fightback is the subject of this film.
Sharp was among the earliest patients to be treated at the first national head injuries unit in Scotland, now recognised worldwide for its work. His progress through physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and psychotherapy, to the point when after three months he forces himself to stand upright, is uplifting. Sharp uses his athletic training to push himself hard towards recovery.
"The film carries a message of hope," says producer and director Jackie Bird. "No matter how bad things may seem, if you have belief in yourself you can achieve great things."

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.
