: TOWARDS TOMORROW

Your future is being created now -for better or worse
A Plague on Your Children
Chemical and Biological Warfare
One breath of a nerve gas will kill you ... and so will a drop of it through the skin. One plane-load of it could wipe out the people of a city like Leeds without destroying the buildings.
One plane flying along the coast of Britain could spray enough germs in one night to infect much of the population of London ... they would not know they had been infected and they would all become ill at about the same time.
What are the facts behind statements like these? How have chemical and biological weapons come to equal nuclear weapons as potential mass killers? What protection is there against them? What, if anything, prevents their being used? What goes on inside Britain's secret research centre at
Porton Down in Wiltshire?
Tonight's documentary film sets out to provide an answer to these questions.

: AT A TIME LIKE THIS

This week:
A LIFE OF HER OWN
1: It all seems such a waste
In 1943, when the war was at its height, a pretty girl of sixteen, crippled with rheumatoid arthritis, was admitted to a geriatric hospital. Today, twenty-five years later, Pamela La Fane is still there, living in a hospital surrounded by the old and the dying. Everyone agrees that she ought not to be there, that there should be some other way of caring for her and the 3,000 young chronic sick like her. This three-part enquiry looks not only at Pamela's life in hospital but her struggle to find a new life outside.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
