: Think of a Number

with Johnny Ball
A light-hearted exploration of numbers and science.
This week Johnny finds
No Cockles, Just Muscles, Alive Alive Oh
Squeezing muscles, waving muscles, levering muscles, springing muscles and jumping muscles.
He'll be in deep water seeing how Archimedes showed his muscles, how to travel first class and still keep a balance and how to keep a camera steady when you're all over the place.
Meanwhile, flex your brain on this one: A round-the-world cyclist has travelled 15,951 kilometres. How many kilometres must he travel before his speedometer again shows a number which reads the same backwards? **

: Where Are They Now?

Presented by David Jacobs
How many times have you wondered what happened to the people who made headlines in the past - and have since disappeared?
More than 50 years ago, a 14-year-old boy soprano recorded 'the most sublime record ever made'. It was 'Oh for the wings of a dove' by Master Ernest Lough. It sold eight million copies and is still one of the most requested records. This week DAVID JACOBS talks to Mr Lough; and goes to California to meet former Wimbledon champion Louise Brough.

: Year of the Car

A Risk Business Special
This autumn sees the launch of two cars vital to the survival of Britain's car industry. BL's long-awaited Metro is the first all-British volume car for a decade arriving at a time when two out of three cars sold here are imports, and when there are severe doubts that Britain can sustain its own car-making company, The new Ford Escort is the result of years of collaboration between
Ford in Britain, Germany and the USA. This multi-national car will determine the fate not only of Ford's European companies, out also of its debt-ridden American car operation.
As Michael Rodd reports, 1980 will be the turning-point in Britain s car industry, whilst Andrew Neil reflects the view from Detroit where today's American crisis could well spell trouble for Europe's small-car makers.

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.
