: One Small Step

A special edition of Tomorrow's World
Just 10 years ago, on 12 April 1961, Yuri Gagarin entered history as the first man in space.
Since then so much has happened so fast in the conquest of space, that the average British child today regards the sight of a man in a space-suit bouncing across the surface of the moon as a relative commonplace.
Yet, simply in terms of the size of our own galaxy, our so-called ' conquest of space ' is little more than one small step outside our front door. Has it been worth while, and can we ever hope to venture further?
In this special edition of Tomorrow's World James Burke reviews the extraordinary milestones of the first years of the space age, and looks ahead to assess the chance and value of further, bigger steps into the unknown.
To make the film involved Burke and the BBC team in thousands of miles of inner space travel. It includes reports from both the USSR and America. There will also be much Russian space film hitherto unseen in the West. Editor LAWRENCE WADE

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
