: Everyman

Heaven's my Destination
'I'm glad that I can come back from space and say - God walking on the earth is more important than man walking on the moon. (JIM IRWIN, Lunar Module Pilot,
Apollo 15)
Since returning from the moon two of the Apollo astronauts - JIM IRWIN and CHARLES DUKE - have committed themselves to Christ. Other astronauts have testified to the strong spiritual impact the space experience made on them. For ED MITCHELL it led to the founding of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, dedicated to research into ESP, parapsychology and the 'alternative' sciences.
This Everyman film reports on the other side of the space programme - not its machinery, but its meaning. Space exploration is still in its very early stages, but it has already made us view ourselves and our ' Spaceship Earth' in new ways. As space travel becomes commonplace what effect will it have on us? With the help of those who have already been there Everyman surveys our new home.

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.
