: Tomorrow's World

A decision is expected soon on whether Britain should begin recycling imported nuclear waste at the Thorp reprocessing plant in Cumbria. The scientific and environmental arguments have been long and bitter, and opinion is sharply divided as to whether Thorp is world-beating technology or just a dangerous nuclear dustbin. Tomorrow's World looks behind the battle lines to examine the way in which the relevant decisions are made and what the implications are for other controversial technologies. Also, how the historic stained glass of a German cathedral inspired a new pollution monitor, and the reason why local vineyards are benefiting. With Kate Bellingham , Carmen Pryce , Judith Hann and Howard Stableford.

Horror Express
Christopher Lee
Peter Cushing Telly Savalas
In the early 1900s, an English anthropologist discovers a strange, frozen ape-man in China. On board the Trans-Siberian Express, he encounters an old rival, determined to find out about his discovery. Meanwhile, the creature defrosts and escapes from its crate - revealing itself to be an alien sent during prehistory on a mission to claim the earth. It is able to force living creatures to absorb it into their bodies where it deprives them of their intellectual faculties, turning them into zombies in the process. So begins a journey of terror for all the passengers when the creature wants to learn how to make a spaceship to transport it home.

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.

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.
