: Tomorrow's World

from West Germany
William Woollard tours the Federal Republic of Germany, our richest and most powerful partner, and rival, in the Common Market. He reports not on their major industries but on some of the less obvious ways in which technological ingenuity is being harnessed-to help the disabled, to improve safety standards, to control pollution.
A telephone for those who are deaf and blind; an emergency robot for nuclear accidents; how can you tell a concert pianist from a beer-garden pianist, just by looking at their hands? A chatty computer that keeps track on your friends; a mountain-top laboratory in the Bavarian snows that sniffs the world's air currents to find out just how fast we are polluting the future.

: Eastward with Attenborough

with David Attenborough 2: Fire Giants of Sumatra
This large island in Indonesia is one of the most volcanic areas in the world. Rare butterflies, orangutans and insect-eating plants take advantage of this fact, and so do men who work in appalling conditions collecting sulphur. At the southern end is the site of the biggest explosion in the world's recorded history - Krakatoa. DAVID ATTENBOROUGH goes there and finds it is still far from dead.

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.
