: James Burke's Connections: 1: The Trigger Effect

James Burke, in the first of a series of ten films, examines the connections between ideas, inventions and amazing coincidences that have made our modern world the shape it is. What happened in the past to make our 20th-century lives so complex? What are the strange events, accidents, people and places that have come together to make change happen - and what will it do to us next?
The series tries to show how the objects that surround us in the modern world - and influence our every action - came into existence. The search for the origins of today's technology has ranged through 20 countries and back as far as 12,000 years ago. The result is a series of fascinating detective stories, in which James Burke reveals some of the mysterious connections between you and the past Which you may never have suspected. In every detective story, you are the sleuth, knowing at each turn of events only as much as the people at the time and, like them, having to guess at what happens next.

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.
