: Tomorrow's World

Megalab UK
This major television contribution to British
Science Week could prove to be the biggest scientific experiment ever carried out. A month ago Tomorrow's World viewers, Radio 1 listeners and readers of The Daily Telegraph were invited to suggest ideas for experiments in which the nation as a whole could take part.
During tonight's programme viewers will be asked to join in on the telephone, to examine the suggestion that people tell lies more convincingly on camera than on radio or in print.
Sufficient lines to deal with 250,000 calls within five minutes have been installed to collect the resulting data, which will be analysed and reported on almost instantly.
"It's a risky idea," admits presenter Howard Stableford , "but we hope we'll discover something new and interesting that scientists would never have known without viewers' help."
He is joined by Judith Hann , Kate Bellingham and Carmen Pryce.

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.
