The series offering the latest news on science, medicine and technology.
Tonight, a special edition from Atlanta, the venue for this summer's Olympic Games. The Olympic torch is being re-engineered and Howard Stableford joins in the testing - on a horse, by car and even in the shower.
Shahnaz Pakravan checks out the new technology for the paralympics; the high-tech artificial limbs and superspeed wheelchairs which will assist the grit and determination of the disabled gold medal winners.
And it's official - winning and losing does make a difference to your hormones - even if you're just a spectator. So a gold for the local hero in 1996 could mean a baby boom in Atlanta in 1997. Producer Peter Ceresole ; Editor Edward Briffa

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.
