Tomorrow's World

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A feature on Richard "Rocketman" Brown, whose dream is to build the world's fastest motorbike. Tomorrow's World witnesses final tests and trials for Brown's Mach Three Challenger - a bike powered by up to three rocket motors with a projected top speed of 500mph.
Also how bacteria in the wetlands around San Francisco Bay could be used to convert toxic waste from oil refineries into harmless gas, plus "virtual queuing" to banish long waits for fairground rides.
Presented by Peter Snow and Philippa Forrester, with Jez Nelson, Craig Doyle and Anya Sitaram.
Producer Daniel Barry ; Editor Saul Nasse

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.
