And what job benefits are there for local people outside the world of hi-tech?

Five programmes eavesdropping on the wards, clinics and corridors of London's Middlesex Hospital. 3: Changing Attitudes
'Often our patients are regarded as end-stage, or dying.... but the bulk of them are not like that at all. They have a specific problem with which they have to live, rather than from which they're going to die.'
Overcoming the fears and prejudices not only of patients and the public, but also of other doctors, is one of the tasks faced by those caring for patients with cancer.

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.
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.
