: Invasion: Earth: The Fourth Dimension

Second of a six-part science-fiction drama.

When key personnel are suddenly abducted without a trace, Drake is convinced that the recovered UFO pilot holds the key to an alarming chain of events.
See today's choices.
Out there: page 10

Invasion: Earth 9.30pm BBC1
Hardware and hokum in heaped measures launched this sci-fi series into fresh realms, for British television at least. Artfully filmed on location, with a battery of special effects and a host of men and machines, it delivers action along with an absorbing plotline.
Last week's opening episode closed with an alien attack under way, and now repeated contact pushes the story into new dimensions. More trigger-happy servicemen go to war, but none can match the ruthlessness of scientist Amanda Tucker (Maggie O'Neill) or the aggression of Squadron Leader Knox (Phyllis Logan).
Chris Drake's (Vincent Regan) attempts to find out more about the alien pilot only pose fresh riddles. But the gruesome sight of alien operations leave no doubts about the seriousness of the threat they pose.

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.
