: Everyman

'I had found a way of life that elated me: I tasted briefly, the nectar of the Gods ...'
But when the round-the-world motorcyclist Ted Simon got back from his four-year, 64,000-mile journey round the globe, he found it impossible to settle in Britain. To the eye of a man who had immersed himself in the cultures of 45 different countries, the British seemed to have sold their soul to materialism. His best-selling account of his trip, Jupiter's Travels, mapped the different, inner road he had found while riding his bike. To try to preserve that vision, he fled to a remote valley in North America.
Now Everyman has brought Ted Simon back to make a new journey, from London to the Scottish islands, meeting the readers who've responded to his book and its insights. Can they show him a Britain worthy of making a home in? Film cameraman RUSS WALKER

: Welcome to My World

Six speculations on life in the computer age. with Robert Powell
5: The Forgery
Suppose that artificial intelligence research finally pays off: that computers write poetry, paint pictures, compose music. Imagine that television can do without actors and radio no longer needs the human voice; that a film producer used technology to recreate a famous film star's presence on the screen and the star took legal action. What if the ultimate prophesy of computer science came true; if machines outstripped the ability of human brain?
Would there be anything left for people to do?

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.
