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.
The series which reports on the biggest
_ breakthroughs, the newest inventions and the latest scientific research returns for a new season.
This first programme includes a story about an airliner that keeps catching fire - it's used for training firefighters and cleverly constructed to be reusable. And there's the strange tale of how Vietnam is funding scientific research with the help of a French aperitif.
The highest grades of anisette liqueur get their flavour from the fruit of the star anise, a rare tree that grows only in the mountains on the border of China and Vietnam, generating funds for the National Centre for Scientific Research and bringing in an extra source of income to the local people. With Howard Stableford,
Judith Hann , Carmen Pryce and Kate Bellingham. Producer Jack Weber
Editor Dana Purvis

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.
