: Prendiville's Finest Innings

Once again the English batsmen have been destroyed by the West Indies pace bowling. Yet how do you play a ball that is coming towards you at 100 mph? Top batsmen say it's just a matter of watching the ball to see what happens. Psychologists say that they're fooling themselves. The brain cannot react in less than a quarter of a second. If you haven't guessed what kind of ball is coming at you within the first tenth of a second, you're already too late to do anything about it.
With a new cricket season about to begin Kieran Prendiville , a keen amateur, sets out to discover whether there is science to the game of cricket; from facing the bowling of England captain Ian Botham, to doing experiments in the wind tunnel at Cambridge University.

: Sir Frank Whittle: Jet Pioneer

Forty years ago this week on 15 May 1941, a diminutive experimental aircraft took off from Cranwell aerodrome on its maiden flight. It was known simply as the E28/39, and was the first British jet. The engine which had made the flight possible was the result of years of unremitting work, against the background of financial insecurity and a marked lack of official interest, by a dedicated RAF officer - Wing Commander Frank Whittle - the man who invented the jet.
But the road to jet propulsion was to prove stony, and the programme traces Sir Frank Whittle 's hard struggle to get a practical jet engine into the air.

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.
