Now You See It....
Presented by Judith Hann Kieran PrendiviUe , Peter Macann , Maggie Philbin In the season of fantasy, conjuring and magic,
Tomorrow's World explores the world of illusion and perception.
From computer graphics to holograms, our lives are full of tantalising images. So how does science help to produce illusions, and what can we learn from the tricks they play on our senses?
The programme includes a way of conjuring up high definition television pictures on a big screen, how the fantasy of a space ship is created for a new feature film, and how the latest robots can see what they are doing. And there will be a chance for viewers at home to test their colour vision and their powers of perception. Producer MARTIN MORTIMORE

: Review of the Year 1984

The year 1984 arrived with quite a reputation to live down. But was it really as bad as all that?
Frank Bough and Selina Scott present Review 1984.
It was the year that saw a famine in Ethiopia, a prime minister assassinated in India, Reagan re-elected in America and an attempt to blow up the British Cabinet. Sometimes the lighter moments seemed hard to find. But 1984 was also the year of the Olympic Games, of body-popping on the streets of London, and of a second child for HRH The Princess of Wales and an appearance on Jackanory for her storyteller husband. Frank and Selina look at some of the events and issues of the year through the eyes of the ordinary people who got caught up in them. They talk to a childless woman who has just welcomed her husband's child, born of a surrogate mother. Selina meets a policeman who lost his helmet on a picket-line in April, and speaks to the mayor of a Yorkshire village in trouble with the law.
Frank learns from the cox who crashed the Cambridge boat, that for him, at least, 1984 was not to be such a bad year after all. Videotape editors

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.
