: Smaller Than Life?: The Riddle of the Virus

One of the most baffling problems in biology today is the mysterious virus. Yet out of its study may come a deeper understanding of the nature of life itself, and perhaps an answer to some forms of cancer. Dr. Kingsley Sanders, Director of the Medical Research
Council's Virus Unit, and a number of his colleagues describe the intensive efforts now being made to seek understanding of particles smaller and simpler than any known organism.
Programme introduced by Raymond Baxter.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
