Tonight, Philippa Forrester reports on a new system undertest by British Airways. For most of the current flight time across the Atlantic, planes are out of radar range and the pilot has to radio his position back to base. By using global positioning satellites, British Airways hope to be able to plot with accuracy the position of every plane in the sky, allowing them to fly closer togetherand still stay safe. Plus, how a laser that can be used to "fingerprint" diamonds is foiling jewel thieves.

9.35pm BBCl There's an alarming story in tonight's episode of 999 that may prompt nervous parents to keep their offspring forever under lock and key. Martin and Sue Skinner bought their four-year-old son Sean a brand new sledge to take on holiday to the Cairngorms. On their first day out, Martin chose a gentle slope to launch Sean on his first run but with nightmarish rapidity, the sledge went out of control and sent Sean plunging through a hole in the snow into a freezing, fast-running stream. Local skiers rushed to help, digging in the snow with their bare hands - but there was little hope that Sean would emerge alive. Eventually, one of the diggers struck something small and warm. And mercifully for the Skinners, there was an off-duty nurse on the scene who managed to bring Sean back to life. Resuscitation skills are also the focus of a report from Seattle, where a public training initiative has resulted in a survival rate of 30 per cent after a heart attack - in Britain, where fewer people know how to save lives, the rate is around five per cent.

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.
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.
