: Horizon: The Future - Made in Japan?

Following on their successes of the last 30 years, the Japanese now aim to dominate the technologies of the 90s and beyond. Among their targets: intelligent computers; fusion power and space.

But that means Japan will have to do fundamental research for the first time. And they're worried about it. Horizon asks - could they finally be over-reaching themselves?

'An intriguing examination of the expertise of the Japanese.' (TIME OUT)

The second of seven programmes
Alien Australians
Narrated by Robert Powell
As courters and captors, Australian spiders use a cunning and sophistication we can but envy. It may be only blind instinct that enables the orb-weaver to construct her web in zero-gravity, but it's a feat that demands the superb technology typical of these highly successful Australians.

Rocking the Navy's Boat
The Government is about to take a decision which could bring into the open a simmering war inside the Ministry of Defence. It's about the way our warships are designed; the navy say their methods are best but they are being challenged-with ministerial encouragement-by a small private design team who say they can offer cheaper, better-armed ships.
Fred Emery reports on this argument between ministers and admirals, civil servants and scientists and on the unusual bitterness it has produced inside the navy.

If present trends continue, Britain will soon be the world leader in deaths from coronary heart disease. The plague will be more virulent here because other countries have started to fight back.

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.
