: Public Eye

Double Trouble
Patients on Britain's psychiatric wards are easy targets for drug dealing, with tragic results. Drug abuse by the mentally ill - so-called "double trouble" - can aggravate symptoms and cause severe psychosis, leadingto assaults and even some deaths. Margaret Lee , whose son Paul died within hours of admission to a hospital's psychiatric ward, blames the hospital for not watching him closely enough, even though the 1992 inquest into Paul's death cleared the hospital of blame. Managers point outthat they are not running prisons; restricting patients' access to illegal drugs may conflict with respecting patients' rights.
Fiona Bruce investigates how these drugs can get onto the wards, and what measures can be taken to stop them. Producer Kim Duke ; Editor Mark Wakefield

The Attic. The speeches of Winston Churchill in 1940 inspired the British people at a perilous time in their history by calling on romantic images of a glorious and idealised past.

: Trophies of War

This Late Show special looks at the art treasures, including Impressionist paintings, that were taken from
Germany by Stalin's "Trophy Brigades" at the end of the Second World War. Some were returned by Khrushchev in 1955 but the rest remained hidden in Soviet monasteries, depositories and museum cellars. Atreaty signed in 1991 by Mikhail Gorbachev agreed that the hoard would be returned, but despite endorsement by Boris Yeltsin attempts are now being made to legalise Russian ownership of these treasures. Tonight's programme discusses changing attitudes in Russia, and includes contributions from the directors of the Hermitage and Pushkin Museums in Russia and the Dresden Art Museum in Germany;
Russia's Deputy Minister of Culture; journalists and lawyers who have studied the case; and Sebastian von
Johnson, heirto some of the paintings in the collection.

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.
