: The Day the Universe Changed

A personal view by James Burke in ten parts 8: Fit to Rule
In the 1730s a Swedish botanist trudged through
Arctic Lapland in an attempt to show that nature never changed. His journey was the first step in a trail that led through the Paris zoo, past an Oxford professor who ate mice and, among the shellfish under Mount Etna, to a new theory that proved the reverse: nature never stood still.
The new theory finally broke the Church's power over science; it was seized on by the great political thinkers; and it gave us the modern world of constant change, where 'the newest survives' rules our lives.

A Newsnight Special
Written and presented by Robert Harris
Forty years after the Allied victory over Germany, a remarkable wartime film has been discovered in America. Shot entirely in colour by a Hollywood director called George Stevens, it has been acclaimed by historians as the most important colour footage ever taken of the war in Europe. The film covers the liberation of Paris, the link-up between the Russian and American armies on the River Elbe, and the Allied capture of Dachau concentration camp.
For the first time, Newsnight has pieced the footage together and spoken to the men who were with George Stevens when he shot it. The result is the re-creation of a unique wartime journey: from the Normandy beaches in June 1944 to the German capital in the summer of 1945.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
