Tonight, Vivienne Parry is at the mercy of 100,000,000 volts of pure electrical energy, in the middle of the world's largest artificial lightninggenerator. By hitting scale model aeroplanes with bolts of electricity, designs can be improved to make the planes safer. Plus Philippa Forrester finds out what you get if you cross a quartz watch with advanced composites: skis with built-in suspension. Presented by Howard Stableford and ShahnazPakravan.

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.
