Tomorrow's World reports from the refrigerated laboratory in Denmark where the disquieting truth emerged when the 250,000-year-old ice was studied. Withjudith Hann , Howard Stableford,

: The Untouchables

Crime drama, written by David Mamet and starring
Kevin Costner
Sean Connery Robert De Niro
Andy Garcia
A tough team of investigators, led by determined young federal agent Eliot Ness , risks everything to stop mafia kingpin Al Capone 's violent reign of terror in Chicago during the Prohibition era of the 1920s, with corrupt colleagues placing additional barriers in their way. The film, which strays some way from real-life events, was inspired by the 60s television series of the same name. Sean Connery won a best supporting actor
Academy Award for his role as veteran Irish cop Jim Malone , who adds some worldly wisdom to Ness's youthful vigour. The film features a score by Ennio Morricone and was directed by Brian De Palma , who made
Carrie, Bonfire of the Vanities and Casualties of War.
(1987) Stereo

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.

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

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.
