3: The Detectives
In this final programme of the current series, Tony Van den Bergh looks at the controversial role of medicine's detectives - the doctors and scientists working on new screening techniques which can give early warning of disease or disorder even before the patient knows he is ill.
While recent advances offer obvious possibilities in more effective treatments, the costs involved - they can be very high - also raise important questions about general availability and priorities, and it is in this area that there is still a great deal of disagreement.

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.
