Horizon

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.
Bitter Cold
Twelve men take freezing baths until they can bear them no longer; are injected with chemicals which make them frightened; shiver naked in cold rooms. All to see if man can adapt to the ferocious Antarctic climate. Later they cross the ice, in conditions of deliberate hardship, isolated in flimsy tents. The stresses become intolerable, not only because each man is an experimental guinea pig, but, by running his own uncomfortable and sometimes frightening human experiments, each has a chance to be tormentor and tormented. It may teach about man's ability to adapt to the Antarctic - but it taught them much more about themselves.
Narrator Paul Vaughan
Filmed and produced for Australian Broadcasting Corporation by DAVID PARER

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.
