: The Check Out: A Humane Death, Suicide or Murder?

On 2 December last year Roy Killingsworth , a 35-year-old psychiatrist dying slowly from a lung illness, asked his doctors to bring about his death. They obliged and he died the following afternoon. In the inventive language of California where this happened, Dr Killingsworth ' checked out'.
Did Dr Killingsworth's doctors behave ethically,- lawfully or even humanely? Were they respecting his right to self-determination or executing his death wish? Roy Kiliingsworth 's case highlights dramatically the host of problems facing patients and physicians everywhere at a time when there seems to be no limit to what medicine can do, even in the face of death.
Ian Kennedy , lecturer in law at King's College, London, explores Roy Killingsworth 's story and raises the questions of ethics, morality and law that surround this and similar cases.-

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.
