Documentaries uncovering human stories from the world of science, medicine and technology. Art and Chips. A work of art, specially commissioned by Q E D, is being given away by the programme tonight.
Created by the "father of pop art" Richard Hamilton , it offers an amusing but disturbing view of today's world. He made his name in the 1950s when, using scissors and glue, he produced a collage depicting life in that period. That work is now worth several hundred thousand pounds. For his 1990s version, he uses the latest computer technology to combine feature film, television programmes, magazines and photographs. Although the original exists only in his computer, he has produced 5,000 hand signed laser prints which will be given away to viewers.
Joanna Lumley tells the story of a unique collaboration between art and television.
Director Rob Bayly

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
