by Professor George Porter
The Royal Institution, London Annual Christmas Lectures to Young People
Lecture 2 : Clockwork Harmony
Most things we use as time machines move in a periodic, harmonic way, and we tell the time by counting the ticks, or oscillations. The young members of the audience experiment with the transformation of oscillations into waves, and look at sounds and listen to pictures.

: Horizon

Just Another World
This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today.
' I don't want us to look at space as something extraordinary; that's not really part of us, a place where you make stunts or where you make big deals with lots of oohs and aahs. I want this to be a regular, run-of-the-mill operation ... the moon is just another world.'
(Space scientist, Kraft Ehricke)
Today in Houston, Texas, one of the most important scientific conferences of all time begins as scientists meet to present the results of their lunar sample experiments.
The moon rocks, the focus of a deep-rooted clash between NASA engineers and lunar scientists, feature strongly in tonight's film as it traces their progress from the moon's surface through the rigours of the Lunar Receiving Laboratory to the experiments of the scientific community.
The film peels off the protective skin of headlines from the space programme in an attempt to get closer to the real reasons for its problems and its achievements. Narrator CHRISTOPHER CHATAWAY

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.
