: Horizon The Secret

This week's programme in the series on Man and Science today.
We are all quick to notice how we differ from each other, tall or short, fair or dark. But we seldom realise how much we are all alike. We expect to have five fingers on each hand, two ears and a nose in the middle.
But how does it happen? As we grow from a minute egg, a single cell, chemicals have to be made, cells have to be organised, and tissues laid down in exactly the right place at exactly the right time - and it happens again and again with such accuracy that we take it completely for granted - even with our children.
But obviously something must determine why eyes become eyes and fingers become fingers. It can'be chance.
It also happens in nature-what are the rules which govern the spreading of a chestnut tree? Why do the patterns on the feathers of a duck come back at each generation? The mystery once seemed insoluble, but now, suddenly, a small group of biologists are finding startlingly simple clues to the way living forms develop.
Supposing we can ultimately reveal the secret of growth and form, of normality. What next? We could have the power to tamper with the very nature of ourselves.

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.
