: Home Ground

Ninth in a 13-part series of investigative programmes from the BBC regions.
A Slim Chance. When Sandra Williams reached 21 stone, she knew she had to diet or put her life at risk. Through her video diary and interviews with reporter Sally Mountjoy , tonight's programme follows her struggle to become, almost literally, half the woman she was.
Sandra's medically-supervised regime of just 400 calories per day replaced food with sachets of protein and mineral powder for months, although she still continued to cook for her family. With obesity reaching epidemic proportions in the UK, specialist Dr Nick Finer explains that one in six adults is putting their health at risk and advocates more help for the seriously overweight.

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.
