: Tomorrow's World

One in ten people with an artificial hip needs to have the joint re-fitted at some stage. At the moment, surgeons must use a hammer and chisel to chip away the old cement which holds the artificial joint in place, and this process may riskfracturingthe fragile bone. Now a sophisticated new surgical instrument can be used to gently melt the cement away using ultrasound. This clever new device was inspired by an ultrasonic tile cutter which was first shown on Tomorrow's World back in 1988. It was spotted by a viewer who was an orthopaedic surgeon.
Plus, a report from Italy on the mysteries of weeping Madonnas and milk-drinking Ganesh statues. Are these "miracles" really examples of supernatural intervention or is there a more earthly explanation?

999 9.30pm BBC 1
There's a moral to the first story in tonight's 999: if you're going to catch a rare and deadly tropical disease, try and do so when there's a a team of international medical experts nearby. That's what happened to Jill Sanderson, a Bristol midwife doing voluntary work in Sierra Leone, who contracted lassa fever - for which there is no known cure. Fortunately for her, a team of American scientists also happened to be in Sierra Leone doing a research project, and treated Jill Sanderson with a new, untried drug. "It had never been used on humans before," says one of the doctors. "It was a gamble." Find out what happened tonight.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
