: Maths Help

A series of 12 programmes 3: Indices
Most of us can accept that -4 has a clear meaning, but when we see the same —4 written as an index it takes on a strangely unreal air. Yet indices arise out of a simplification, a shorthand way of writing down multiplication. It is this new way of putting down the mathematics that is unfamiliar, not its implications.

with Richard Baker
Will Melina Get her Marbles Back? The Elgin Marbles are probably the most famous relics of antiquity in the world. They were taken from the Parthenon in Athens in 1801 and have been the glory of the British Museum ever since. Now the Greeks want them back. Melina Mercouri , film star and Greek Minister of Culture, is on the war-path, and an official request from her government for their return is expected soon. Dr David Wilson is director of the British Museum and with the trustees sees himself as responsible for keeping and conserving rather than dispersing the collection.
Science-fiction artist Tim White lives in a Chatham housing estate, but his work evokes a much more extraordinary world of the imagination....

Presented by Eric Robson
On the eve of St Valentine, Sunday Night looks at relationships with Sunday Times cartoonist Mel Calman, author of Couples. How does a man who claims 'I am deeply pessimistic and what really depresses me is that I cannot be pessimistic enough' make us laugh about the way we relate to each other? And Religious Affairs Correspondent Rosemary Hartill looks behind the week's religious news.

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.
