Live reports on what's new, fascinating and bizarre in the world of science and technology.
To mark the imminent start of the holiday season, tonight's programme aims to cover everything anyone ever wanted to know about travelling but didn't know who to ask.
There is a report on how to overcome the lethargy of long-distance flying: it has been suggested that bright lights and brisk walks could help combat the horrors of jet-lag. Plus a future alternative to holiday vaccinations, a black-box flight recorder for your car, and that indispensible aid for the family on the road, a cot in a suitcase! And there is also a chance to win a family holiday with a scientific twist.

: Inside Story

The return of the documentary series.
Why Women Kill. Last year, in America, 682 men were killed by their wives or girlfriends. That is the tip of an iceberg in which an estimated three or four million women are physically and psychologically battered and abused by their partners each year. Some kill to escape their predicament, but in many cases the courts will not let these women explain what motivated them. A life sentence is not unusual and some women are even sentenced to death. In this programme prisoners in Alabama and Texas reveal how they came to commit such acts. Producer Olivia Lichtenstein
Executive producer Paul Hamann

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.
