: Home Ground: The Hardest Decision

Tenth in a 13-part series of investigative programmes from the BBC regions.
Baby Nimi [text removed] was born with a life-threatening heart defect and the agonising decision of her parents, Makhan and Gurbax, to deny her the chance of a heart transplant, knowing that she could die without it, is the subject of tonight's programme.
The Birmingham family's eldest daughter Nicky was born with the same genetic heart defect-dilated cardiomyopathy - and was given a heart transplant when she was three. Subsequently she suffered a stroke and lost the use of her eyes, limbs and speech.
Makhan and Gurbax have had two healthy girls in between Nicky and Nimi, but have lost faith in heart transplants, believing that they prolong suffering and are not the answer to Nimi's illness.
Without the operation, Nimi is not expected to live beyond the age of four, but the couple have carefully considered their decision and have talked the situation through with the doctors involved. Tonight they talk to reporter Nick Booth about the problems they face and how difficult life is for their family.

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.
