Tomorrow's World


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.
Vivienne Parry continues her report on Graeme Tennick, a victim of a car crash three years ago whose face is to be rebuilt in a pioneering operation. Tonight, the rehearsals on a precisely engineered model of Graeme's skull are over and Vivienne catches up with him two hours before surgeon Keith Postlethwaite attempts the real operation at Newcastle General Hospital.
From Australia Monty Don meets the inventor who has perfected a way to kill thousands of cockroaches in a single night in an environmentally sound way. On Easter Island the famous stone heads may last for ever but the last surviving tree was cut down for firewood in 1957. Howard Stableford reports on a plan to reforest Easter Island with an exact genetic copy of the trees that used to grow there.
Presented by Carol Vorderman with Shahnaz Pakravan, Richard Mabey and Rebecca Stephens.

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.
