PART 2

: Stephen Grenfell is the storyteller in OUR DAY AND AGE

True stories of the world we live in 18—' MISSION OF MERCY '
In the early hours of the morning a child awakes in her father's croft in a remote island of the Outer Hebrides. The pain has grown much worse. Her brother is hurriedly dressed and sent for the doctor, who says an operation within the next few hours can save her life; but equipment and facilities for such an emergency operation lie far away on the Scottish mainland. One phone call and the Scottish Air Ambulance Service swings into action. Within the hour a B.E.A. aircraft carrying a nursing sister from the Southern General Hospital, Glasgow, takes off from Renfrew Airport. Another mission of mercy has begun.
Script by Stephen Grenfell Produced by Archie P. Lee
In the BBC's Glasgow studios

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.
