Do You Sincerely Want to Live Forever?
'I would think that by the end of the century we would be living to 150-200 years. I think that is a conservative estimate.' (ROY WALFORD , md,
Professor of Pathology,
University of California)
The quest for immortality is mankind's oldest dream. Now some scientists believe they are close to understanding why we grow old, and how to slow, or even stop the ageing process. In America this research has spawned the Life Extension movement, whose members follow special diets and consume large quantities of anti-ageing drugs in the hope of living for a very long time.
Everyman has been to
America to film the leaders of the Life Extension movement and to examine the scientific evidence behind their claims, and the moral implications of the attempt.

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.
