: Horizon: The Drifting of the Continents

This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today.
Last December the remains of a small dinosaur were found in Antarctica. More recently an Italian fishing village was found to be slowly rising. Each day the inhabitants of San Francisco await the destruction of their city.
These three unrelated news items have now been linked by exciting new discoveries based on the old theory of ' Continental drift.'
Many a doodling schoolboy has noticed that South America nearly fits under the bulge of West Africa and that the two could have split apart; but within the last few years scientists have discovered that all the world's land masses are involved in a global merry-go-round. Where they split apart earthquakes and volcanoes occur, and where they collide great mountain ranges have been pushed up from the surrounding ocean.
These discoveries have meant a revolution in geology and tonight's Horizon tells the whole fascinating story of the earth's waltzing continents.

: The Glory That Remains The Thousand-year Walk

The fourth of six programmes in which Robert Erskine seeks to recapture ancient times.
The reliefs and inscriptions which cover the colossal Egyptian Temple of Karnak make this famous ruin a document in stone which records the political events of 1,000 years from 1800 BC.
It was the central shrine of Amun, a humble local god of Thebes, who rose to supremacy with the support of the Theban Pharaohs who were his devotees. Over 10 centuries they added vast courts, halls, and gateways to celebrate his greatness.

: International Golf from the United States

The 1970 us Masters Tournament Defending champion GEORGE ARCHER (USA)
The highlights of the Final Round Introduced by HARRY CARPENTER
Throughout the hard, long season of the American Professional Circuit, no tournament commands greater respect and affection from both players and spectators than the ' Masters.' Played annually over the famed and deceptively beautiful Augusta National Course the ' Masters ' always produces a champion of distinction.
As well as all the great names of the American circuit, the invitation list this year includes Britain's TONY JACKLIN and BERNARD GALLACHER; GARY PLAYER of South Africa; ROBERTO DE VICENZO of the Argentine; BRUCE DEVLIN of Australia, and BOB CHARLES of New Zealand.
This is the first of four top golf events from the USA that will be shown in colour on BBC2 within hours of their finish. The others are the us Open in June, the us PGA in August, and the World Series, ' the championship of champions' in September. And of course there will be full coverage of the major British events.

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.
