Maggie Philbin and Howard Stableford return with a new series of the programme which features all the latest developments in science, technology and medicine.
This year Tomorrow's World has been to the People's Republic of China, where science is one of the new priorities. The series will be keeping an eye on preparations by NASA for next summer's relaunch of the shuttle. Closer to home work starts on the channel tunnel, Nelson's column gets a face-lift, and fish and chips celebrate their
125th birthday by becoming a healthier food.
And tonight; the French car that does a 100 miles to the gallon, and how in California they're preparing for the earthquakes they know will come - including one that's due this week!

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.
