: Scientifically Speaking

Out Where the Stars do not Twinkle
Presented by John Maddox
How big is the universe? How old is it? Did it have a beginning? Will it have an end? Will observations of black holes or quasars reveal new laws of physics? Are there other planetary systems like our own?
In the early 1980s NASA plans to launch into orbit a space telescope that may provide astronomers with new, exciting information on these fundamental questions simply because the telescope will be located outside the partially opaque atmosphere between us and the rest of the universe.
Professor Lyman Spltzer , of Princeton University Observatory, and Professor John Bah call, of the Institute for Advanced Study. Princeton, discuss their expectations for the large orbiting space telescope. And Professor R. Giacconi , of Harvard Observatory, describes the expected information to be received from a new X-ray satellite which will be launched this year.

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.
