Making the Most of the Micro

Play Programme

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.
The second series of The Computer Programme
8: Everything Under Control
How can the computer be made to sense what is going on round it and control motors or switches so that it seems to be doing something intelligent? Ian McNaught-Davis and John Coll look at a range of micro-controlled applications, from a sophisticated mechanical hand for the disabled to a number of do-it-yourself devices, including a temperature sensor and an inexpensive robot vehicle.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
