To celebrate its 1,000th edition, the series that brings you tomorrow's news today from the worlds of science, medicine, technology and the environment, takes a trip down memory lane.

And not forgetting that uplifting little breakthrough from 1967,
'suspenderless stockings' - in other words, tights!
Back to the future, tonight's programme reports on the giant umbrella protecting Swedish spruce trees from acid rain, and includes news from the clinic offering pioneering treatments to pregnant women. Presented by Kate Bellingham ,

: Inside Story

Fourth programme in the documentary series.
Presumed Guilty. In the wake of the Birmingham Six appeal, Michael Mansfield , QC, a leading defence barrister, reveals exclusively to Inside Story his radical proposals for transforming the criminal justice system.
Mansfield maintains that the scale and frequency of miscarriages shows them to be an integral part of the system and, through the testimonies of people who have suffered injustice, demonstrates that a person's right to be thought innocent until proven guilty has been eroded. Taking the best from the French and American systems, Mansfield constructs an alternative for
Britain that is based on reaffirming this right. Producer Yvette Vanson

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.
