A weekly programme about work in the world of science
Laboratories behind the Doctor by Sir Charles Dodds ,
M.V.O., F.R.S.
Courtauld Professor of Biochemistry in the University of London
New scientific discoveries are continually being adapted to help the doctor. Tests that once took a skilled scientist a day to carry out, and so were impracticable, are now done by the dozen in an hour bv a technician and have consequently become routine aids. Sir Charles selects a number of techniques that have been introduced in recent years and shows how they help the doctor to reach a sound diagnosis.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
