: How Do They Do That?

Sports presenter Desmond Lynam moves over to entertainment in dramatic fashion byjumpingfrom a helicopter, crashing through the roof of Television Centre and falling into the studio to present this new programme about how apparently impossible human accomplishments are achieved.
In the series, Lynam and co-presenter Jenny Hull explain such baffling technical feats as how an oil rig the size of Wembley Stadium and as high as the Eiffel Tower is positioned to within one inch of accuracy in the stormy North Sea. Plus, how investigators identified the suitcase which contained the Lockerbie bomb from among four million fragments scattered across 850 square miles. They also attempt to demystify some amazingf ilm and TV effects - for example, how babies who can't yet walk manage to dance in unison for a TV commercial.

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.
