: The Engineer Through the Looking Glass

The Royal Institution
Annual Christmas Lectures to Young People, 1974 by Professor Eric Laithwaite of Imperial College, London 1: Looking Glass House
In Looking Glass House there are many strange objects and some of them will possibly modify our view of the real world objects on the ' front side' of the mirror. But, like Alice, we shall proceed quite slowly and with some caution, for we tread new ground.

: Everest the Hard Way

The story of the 1975 British Expedition led by Chris Bonington Everest's South West Face was called ' the last great mountaineering challenge on Earth'. Five previous attempts to climb it had all failed. Now it has been climbed. When the British Everest Expedition set out from Katmandu in July a BBC film team went with them to share the day-to-day problems of tackling the world's highest mountain, CHRIS BONINGTON'S personal diary, together with comments from the other climbers, provide a unique opportunity to experience the expedition through the thoughts and feelings of those who took part.

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.
