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.
The series offering the latest news on science, medicine and technology.
Nine years ago this week, The
Herald of Free Enterprise sank in Zeebrugge, leaving 193 people dead. Further disasters have shown that roll-on, roll-off ferries can quickly become unstable. Philippa Forrester meets one of the survivors of another shipping disaster, the Estonia, and visits the Norwegian ferry, Colour Festival, which is beingfitted with doors that divide the deck up, making the ship far more stable if the deck floods. Norway is insistingthat all its ferries are fitted with the system by spring 1997, so why is Britain not followingsuit?
Also, Jez Nelson reports from Mexico on the top team of physicists, biochemists and mechanical engi neers who are trying to crack a culinary conundrum: how to make the perfect tortilla.
Presented by Howard Stableford and Shahnaz Pakravan , with Vivienne Parry and Rebecca Stephens.
Producer Saul Nasse ; Editor Edward Briffa

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.
