: Time Machines

by Professor George Porter
The Royal Institution, London Annual Christmas Lectures to Young People
Lecture 1: In the Beginning ... Moving through Time and Space From birth we learn that our world contains objects of various sizes and shapes which exist in something we call space, and that the movement of these objects happens not only in space but also in a strange dimension called time. An amusing selection of miscellaneous objects move in bizarre ways to demonstrate what we know about time.

: The World About Us: The Incredible Hummingbirds

with Peter Scott
To Brazilians they're beija flores - flower kissers; to Cubans zumzum - their wings hum at 80 beats a second. They can fly backwards, must feed about every ten minutes, and have brilliant iridescent colours. No wonder they fascinate People: some enthusiasts even give them shower baths, cut their toe-nails, and analyse their amazing flight by filming in ultra-slow motion.

: Yesterday's Witness: The Battle of Cable Street

On 4 October 1936 a part of East London became a battlefield. Nothing like it had been seen before. It was the day when the British Fascists attempted to march through the Jewish East End.
A quarter of a million Londoners mobilised to prevent them and as one of them says: 'From that day onwards Mosley never again ventured into the ghetto streets of East London.'
Taking part: Sir Oswald Mosley, Bill Fishman, Miss Edith Ramsay, Phil Piratin, Dr Hugh Faulkner

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.
