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.
Fancy dining on a moon of Jupiter and rolling down the tongue of a giant chameleon? Such psychedelic fantasies may soon be realised, thanks to the latest computer technology known as virtual reality. This spectacular journey, filmed on location in VR itself, explores the past, present and future of a technology that the computer hackers and science-fiction writers who invented it believe will change the world. Sir Michael Hordern is tour guide to the electronic frontier of cyberspace.

BBC Two England, 29 April 1991 20.10

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.
