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.
with Judith Hann , Peter Macann , Maggie Philbin , and Howard Stableford
In a special New Year show Tomorrow's World travels through a time warp and emerges in 1886. What were the latest developments in science and technology just 100 years ago?
As we know now, it was quite a year. There was the new contraption which might prove more successful than the steam-driven horseless carriage. There were 'electric' waves which could travel from one side of the laboratory to the other. There was the new explosive answer to high speed photography. And there was a new patent tonic from
America with a secret recipe and a wonder ingredient.... Producer 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.
