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 live magazine show which covers the latest in technology, medicine and the environment.
This week: aphids eat crops but what will eat aphids? The story of the search for the insect that could take on a whole field of the number one wheat pest. And Karina Kelly reports on Australian efforts to save the giant green turtle from extinction. Tourism and hunting have led to a 90 per cent drop in the numbers of the turtles in the last 30 years. The creatures have a life span of 150 years but don't start breeding until they are 50. Off the coast of Queensland scientists are trying to find out more about the sexual habits of the turtles so that a strategy for their survival can be planned.

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.
