: Tomorrow's World

The magazine show which covers the latest in technology, medicine and the environment.
This week there's a report on how India's Space Department is using satellites to find water in a drought. The tell-tale signs of hidden water - such as places where plants grow better than in others - are not always visible from ground level.
Satellite pictures can double the chances of finding the right spot to drill a well. But the pictures beamed back are not just of water sites. They also give a fuller picture of the country's natural resources. Bob Symes tries out the latest nautical inventions. Using a new easy-to-read compass, he navigates the Solent. And he tests a safety gauge that checks how hard the anchor is gripping the sea bed and warns if the boat is drifting onto the rocks.
With Howard Stableford, Judith Hann , Kate Bellingham , Carmen Pryce and John Diamond. Producer Richard Dale Editor Dana Purvis ●STEREO

By the Conservative Party.


Investigative science series. Little Monsters. "He's like a Jekyll and Hyde, an angel one moment and a monster the next," says the distraught mother of a 7-year-old. Most children can be little monsters at times but there are some who seem to be permanently uncontrollable whatever their parents do. Hyperactivity is one of the most controversial conditions in child psychiatry. In older children it can lead to vandalism and serious crime.
Is it due to food additives, brain damage or just bad parenting? Tonight's programme reports on new research which has produced surprising answers, bringing hope for at least some of the little monsters.

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.
