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.
Tonight, Philippa Forrester reports on a new system undertest by British Airways. For most of the current flight time across the Atlantic, planes are out of radar range and the pilot has to radio his position back to base. By using global positioning satellites, British Airways hope to be able to plot with accuracy the position of every plane in the sky, allowing them to fly closer togetherand still stay safe. Plus, how a laser that can be used to "fingerprint" diamonds is foiling jewel thieves.
Presented by Howard Stableford and Shahnaz Pakravan , with Vivienne Parry , Rebecca Stephens and Jez Nelson. Producer Saul Nasse ; Editor Edward Briffa

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.
