In the last decade new anaesthetics, drugs and surgical techniques have transformed the art of medicine.
Anaesthetics have come a long way since the early days of ether. The modern anaesthetics can take a patient down to the level of oblivion required for a major operation, or keep him at a level of near-consciousness quite free from pain. Machinery controlled by the anaesthetist can take over the function of heart, lungs and other organs, while sophisticated monitors can anticipate an emergency and even prophesy the patient's future condition.

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.
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.
