: Horizon

The Hot-blooded Dinosaurs
There is a revolution happening in the world of dinosaurs; all our ideas about them are being challenged. They were not slow-moving cold-blooded reptiles but agiie, inteHigent and hot-blooded, like mammals.
These are the controversial claims of a group of scientists in tonight's programme. The controversy has been caused by creatures like the deinonychus 'terrible claw', a two-footed terror which attacked feet-first, and the stegasaurus, a bizarre creation with its own air-conditioning system. Studies of Living animals are providing answers to seemingly impossible questions like how much dinosaurs ate, and how fast they could run. And there is an answer to the ultimate problem of all: where did diresaurs go? It's now claimed they didn't all die out. Their descendants are alive and well and living all around us today!

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.
