: Tomorrow's World Special: Tomorrow's Universe

Twenty years ago the Soviet Union launched an unmanned aluminium sphere into orbit around the earth. The Space Age had begun and 'Sputnik' entered into the vocabulary of every nation.
Tonight's programme looks at progress since that day and asks: 'What will happen in space in the centuries to come?'
'Could it become the battlefield of tomorrow?'
'Will more people live in space than on earth by the year 2150?'
'Will black holes become the cosmic transit system of the future?'
Michael Rodd and William Woollard of the Tomorrow's World team are joined by Prof Gerard K. O'Neill of Princeton University and James Burke, making a guest appearance from Cape Canaveral.

: Great Writers

Four literary portraits from Omnibus
This week, the last in the series
Torrents of the Mind by v. S. PRITCHETT
An introduction to the novels of Honore de Balzac (1799-1850) with Maurice Denham as Goriot, Stephen Murray as Vautrin
Honore de Balzac, one of the world's great story-tellers, wrote The Human Comedy in 20 years: it is made up of more than 70 novels and collections of short stories. Early in his career, he wrote: 'Our passions, our vices, our inborn extremism, our pleasures and our pain, are torrents of the mind flowing through us. When a man gives himself totally to fixed ideas he is destroyed by them.' It is those words which V. S. Pritchett sees as the theme of 'The Human Comedy', and in tonight's film he shows his own way into the comic and consuming world of the great French writer.

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.
