: Think of a Number

with Johnny Ball
This week Johnny discovers
Elementarianisticalizationableism ... or it's elemental when it's on the table.
Atomic elements, lit up elements, man-made elements and elements that melt in your hand. See how two people become the salt of the earth, the spoon that won't stir your cocoa and a machine that knows its place - underground.
Meanwhile, try to iron out this one - hope it's not too ' Boron '. Three matches make four-how? You mustn't break them.**

This ice event has attracted competitors from 11 countries, including the two strongest ice skating nations in the world -the USSR and the USA. Two events reach their climax with tonight's Free programme: The Ice Dance features Britain's JAYNE TORVILL and CHRISTOPHER DEAN , fourth in the World Championships earlier this year and, with the retirement of Robin Cousins, our main hopes for honours in the 1981 season.
The Men should provide an exciting battle between the Canadian champion BRIAN POCKAR , American SCOT HAMILTON, IGOR BOBRIN from the USSR, and Japan's brilliant free skater FUMIO IGARASHI. Commentator ALAN WEEKS

The Autumn Equinox
Patrick Moore , with the aid of a sundial at his Selsey home, explains why equinoxes occur, and shows how the seasons of the year vary, due to the tilt of the Earth's axis. Other planets in the solar system have different axial tilts and therefore different seasons; PATRICK MOORE compares them with those of our own world.

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.
