D Conquest of Disease '
AMABEL WILLIAMS ELLIS
Were the ' good old days ' quite so good as they sound ? Certainly not for the people who lived in crowded, unhealthy streets where typhoid and typhus killed them by the hundred, nor even for patients in hospitals where no anæsthetics were used and nursing was in the hands of unskilled and frequently dirty women.
How did things change ? When and how were anaesthetics discovered, antiseptics introduced, and skilled nurses first trained in hospitals ? Can you name any famous people to whom, in this connection, the world owes a lasting debt ?
The broadcast is to take a novel form, which should greatly add to the interest of listeners.

: ' W. H. HUDSON-NATURALIST AND POET' Vita Sackville-West

' Of all living authors-now that Tolstoy is gone-I would least dispense with W. H. Hudson ', wrote Galsworthy on one occasion. And to those who love his books, Hudson is indispensable. He stands beside Richard Jefferies in the very first rank of English nature-writers.
But, unlike Jefferies, he was not a purely English nature-writer. He was born in Argentina (in 1841) and spent the first tweny-nine years of his life there. And South America was the subject of both his first book, ' The Purple Land ', and his most popular book, ' Green Mansions '.
Of his prose style another master,
Joseph Conrad , once said: ' Hudson writes as the grass grows. The good God makes it be there. And that is all there is to it.'

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.
