: Tomorrow's World at Large

A Lady in Drag
Drag racing is a sport for people with a single ambition-to build a machine that will propel them down a quarter of a mile of disused air-strip, faster than anyone else. Speeds of 200 mph across the finish line are commonplace, acceleration of 0-100 mph in 1½ seconds is a necessity. Precision construction and the most advanced design technology has to come together to get the most out of drag racing's fastest performer -the Top Fuel car, an explosive handful even for the most experienced drivers.
With the help of one of Top Fuel's top drivers, a psychologist and a fighter pilot, Maggie Philbin learns how to race it.

At 22, Imogen Foulkes from South Wales is the boss of a business with 200 employees and an income in excess of L3 million a year. She is senior president of Edinburgh University Students Association and spokeswoman for 10,000 students.
For Imogen and her executive colleagues in power-Tony Miles, Alan Little and Laurence O'Don nell - election to the coveted posts brings a sabbatical year away from academic study and a salary of over £4,000. They are also expected to represent and campaign on behalf of their members and customers, the students.
With university grants falling in value, many undergraduates are having to skimp to survive. Imogen leads her supporters on to the streets to carry the message home to the public. They face opposition both on and off the campus.

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.
