: TOWARDS TOMORROW

Tuesday's Documentary
Your future is being created now -- for better or for worse?
SUPER-CITY
Some quite fantastic designs for the cities of the twenty-first century are already appearing on drawing boards all over the world. Advanced technology has now made it possible to build cities that are quite unlike anything anyone has lived in before
Buckminster Fuller, Reyner Banham, Wilem Frischmann and Boyd Auger reveal in this filmed programme their ideas about what the city of the future will be like. Their projects, and the whole concept of cities are examined from the human angle by: Lewis Mumford, author of The Culture of Cities

with
Dr. Terence Lee, psychologist
Tom Marcus, Professor of Building Science
Dr. John Calhoun of the United States National Institute of Health
The Rev. Chad Varah, Founder of the Samaritans

The question is will the cities of the future be worth living in? Will we learn from our past mistakes? Or will the psychoses that affect today's cities merely become super-psychoses when we start building super-cities?

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.
