: HORIZON

A review of the sciences
AN INGENIOUS MAN
I rate John Baker as the greatest structural engineer alive today
As an engineer, his influence not only on structural design but on education has been tremendous
Tonight's programme is a portrait of Professor Sir John Baker one of this country's most distinguished engineers
(an engineer being, in his own words, a man who can do for 10/- what any fool can do for 11)
It traces his career from his early work on airships in the 1920s, on air-raid shelter design during the last war, to his present-day influence on young engineers in his department at Cambridge.

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.
