: Towards Tomorrow: Tuesday's Documentary: 2001: An Earth Prophecy

Your future is being created now - for better or for worse?
with
Isaac Asimov - Science-fiction writer and biochemist
Dr. Herman Kahn - Director of one of the world's leading 'Think Tanks'
Dr. Grey Walter - Neurologist and science-fiction writer
Dr. William Simon and Dr. John H. Gagnon of the Institute of Sex Research Inc.
Thomas Pauling and Imogen Sutton of Form 2H1, Holland Park Comprehensive School
Science-fiction writers have been trying for decades to prepare us for 2001 and beyond. As more of yesterday's science-fiction comes true, we are forced to believe that some of the far-fetched prophecies being written now will also come true.
Not only science-fiction writers like Isaac Asimov and imaginative film-makers like Stanley Kubrick, but professionals in conclaves called Think Tanks, are now busy on what is becoming big business — prediction.
Tonight's documentary presents Interwoven patterns of prophecy from all these sources, plus the reactions and visions of those who must come to terms with the 2001 that prophets predict - the children of today who will have to live In it.

Gilels Plays
An insight into the life of the world-famous Russian pianist Emil Gilels
This Russian film, which includes some unique shots of ' old ' Russia, interpreted through the music of Shostakovich, shows Gilels at work rehearsing, teaching, and performing works of Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Chopin and Beethoven.
At fifty-three, Emil Gilels , undisputedly among the world's finest pianists, is at the peak of his long and brilliant career which began at the age of six and progressed so rapidly that he gave his first concert at the age of thirteen. Besides leading a very active life as a virtuoso, touring extensively abroad, he is one of the foremost professors of piano at the Moscow Conservatoire, and in 1962 was awarded the Lenin Prize, the highest honour in Soviet art.

: VIEWPOINT

For Final Glory
Richard Holloway is a priest of the Scottish Episcopal Church.
Over the last ten years he has engaged in active protest against slum landlords, corrupt democracy, and the Bomb.
Now, at the age of thirty-five, he is revising his ideas about the social hopes of Christianity.
Is this a personal failure of nerve or a major clue to the danger of selling the Gospel cheap?
Richard Holloway speaks to Hugh Cochrane
Producer, JAMES DEY from Scotland

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.
