Imagine you're a spider and you've got to construct a web high up between the branches of a tree. In human terms it could be the same as a person on top of Nelson's Column building a monster spider web right across Trafalgar Square. And that's exactly what Terry attempts to do in today's programme to show the complex engineering that goes into an ordinary spider's web.

In the last of three topical debates Robin Day asks Lord Searman and Professor Ronald Dworkin
How should we attack racial disadvantage - should there be reverse discrimination?
Last summer's riots brought new urgency to the question of racial disadvantage in Britain. In his report on the Brixton disorders, Lord Scarman recommended that ' ethnic minorities should enjoy for a time positive discrimination in their favour.' But Lord Searman rejected what is called 'reverse discrimination for example quotas giving special advantage to ethnic minority members in competing with whites. Advocates of reverse discrimination believe that quotas and other special measures in favour of blacks should be tried in order to reduce racial tension. That is the view of Professor Dworkin arguing from the American experience.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
