: The Energy Crunch: 3: The Sunbeam Solution: Tuesday's Documentary

The last of three programmes on one of the most urgent problems of this half-century.

If oil is running out and the safety of nuclear power is in doubt, what else is there? What energy will carry us through the last decades of this century and into the next? Curiously, the answer may be staring us in the face-the sun. It has been heating and lighting this planet since time began.
The technology for harnessing it properly is available. Every household could have a virtually free supply of power.

In addition to the power over our heads, there is plenty more under our feet. Geothermal energy only a few miles below the earth's crust is already being tapped. But many governments and big corporations are not looking at these things. The research is being done by small groups, often by amateurs.
Why? Why do we waste 80 per cent and sometimes 90 per cent of our energy supplies? The solutions are comparatively simple and involve less financial investment, not more. As one scientist says: 'the energy problem will solve itself - either we approach the subject rationally or the lights will go out.'

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.
