In a new six-part series, Jonathan Miller offers his perspective on the development of the nation's health since the end of the Second World War.
Nowadays, health is something we regard as a social right, but it has not always been that way. Medical historians Chris Lawrence and Charles Webster discuss the origins of the nation's health. Miller also talks to John Pemberton, Richard Doll and Jerry Morris who saw at first hand the impact of poverty and malnutrition on health during the 1930s, and whose campaigning paved the way for the creation of a National Health Service.

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.
