: Horizon

A review of the sciences.
Introduced by Christopher Chataway.

Where Must the Money Go?
Today many sophisticated pieces of medical hardware are coming out of the laboratory and into the hospital, among them kidney machines, artificial hearts, and monitoring devices for coronary victims. But these machines are often very expensive and may tie up capital in the treatment of chronic illness, capital which could be used for other, perhaps equally urgent, cases. How does international medical opinion see the outcome of this dilemma?

Phantoms Incorporated
Radiation studies, manned spaceflight experiments, and accident research all depend, for many of their results, on 'Phantoms'. These are substitutes for humans that give valuable information on the limits of tolerance of the human body. Horizon looks at their manufacture and functions.

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.
