: CASUALTY

A sound-picture of twenty-four hours in the Casualty Department of a large hospital
Gaenor Thomas recently spent twenty-four hours following and recording events in a casualty department of a large teaching hospital. Using the microphone as an eavesdropper, she was able to talk to many people who are involved in running this essential service and to some of the patients themselves.
The programme captures the changing atmosphere of the casualty department where so many different cases are admitted during the day and night. One person who worked there said that ' this is a place where you are either rushed off your feet or bored to tears.'

Today sunrise at Lerwick in the Shetlands was after 10 o'clock and even at Land's End it was almost 9 o'clock.

But are they making a fuss about nothing or at least forgetting the advantages to industry of being on Continental Time?

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.
