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 Hunting of the Quark
No one knows for sure what quarks are because no one has yet found one. Some physicists believe though that they might be the first particles to be created after the big bang beginning of the universe - and that is why quarks might be very important. The search for the existence of the quarks is one of the most intriguing detective stories of science. It exercises the minds of the world's leading physicists who are attempting to take matter apart and look back at the very early stages of creation. Why do they do it? Curiosity-the sheer excitement of discovery and of finding beauty and unity in nature at its most fundamental level. Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
Film editor CHRISTOPHER WOOLLEY Editor BRUCE NORMAN

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.
