: Safe in Our Hands?

In the second of four programmes on the politics of health in Britain, Clive Cookson looks at the internal politics of the Health Service. It has been described as one of the few British institutions whose staff open, rather than close, ranks when under attack. Why have doctors, nurses and administrators become increasingly politicised in their dealings both with government and with each other, and why does the voice of the patient sound so small in the clamour for attention?

: A Clean Sheet

Bankruptcy, divorce, imprisonment, unemployment, widowhood or sudden conversion can all lead to the need for a fresh start in life. Does the effect of past guilt, failure or bereavement remain a stumbling block? Where do people find the strength to begin again? In a basically unforgiving society, how easy is it to leave the past behind and start with a clean sheet?
Libby Purves introduces a range of people who recount their experiences, and talks to studio guests.

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.
