Presented by Judith Hann
Michael Rodd , Kieran Prendiville with SU INGLE
First weigh yourself an entire galaxy; then add some totally unexpected ingredients discovered in a soup tin - without opening it; look for a new way to concentrate daylight in dull British weather to provide power to cook by - and it's business as usual in the Tomorrow's World kitchen.

: Behind the Scenes with....

Pamela Stephenson
The first in a series of ten programmes about how creative people work and think.
Comedy, fantasy and music are explored behind the scenes with the blonde comedienne from Not The Nine O'Clock News, in which she appears in original costume as Twiggy or Lana Turner , as a yeti or a mouse, impersonating Angela Rippon or Kate Bush , and as herself for photographer Terry Donovan. Also included is a pungent reply to a fan letter, an exploration of female humour at a girls' school and a modern dance routine with robots TIK and TOK. For her finale Pamela serves up a lampoon of the pop industry and her writers, ending with a first performance of a new song.

: The Defence of the United States

' The most important TV documentary of the year.'
(WASHINGTON POST)
'... in the best tradition of popular television journalism.'
(the ECONOMIST)
David Dimbleby introduces a major series from CBS Television, presented in four parts. These graphic documentaries had an enormous impact on the American public and critics alike when they were shown earlier in the summer. Made against a background of a massive increase in military spending, they explore the options facing the United States in a new era of super-power rivalry and danger.
1: Ground Zero
How much power has America got in its nuclear arsenal? How would it respond to a nuclear alert?
This film looks at the true state of the nuclear balance between the United States and the Soviet Union, and shows, in a highly dramatic reconstruction, what a genuine nuclear attack would be like for the military men-and for an ordinary family in Omaha, Nebraska.

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.
