: Horizon: The Fretful Elements

This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today.

Perpetual summer for Britain, 'rain on the desert,' warm seas at the Poles. These are some of the hopes held out by scientists who are trying to alter our weather. But they are not so much more fantastic than the achievements already within our grasp, the computers that generate weather maps without being told the weather, the sound-waves that can pin-point turbulent air. Already American physicists claim to have tamed a hurricane, and foresee weather forecasts for three months ahead. The next decade will see a revolution in our understanding of the weather. Will it produce a Golden Age, or, if misapplied, the ultimate weapon of terror?

: The Glory That Remains: Walls That Speak

The last in a series of six programmes in which Robert Erskine seeks to recapture the life and events of ancient times.

Splendid temples, baths, and forums grew up to adorn the Roman city of 'Lepcis Magna' on the Libyan coast; and the theatre - or the horrors of the amphitheatre - provided the citizens with entertainment.
Roman civic magnificence was traditionally the gift of private benefactors, so that every public building bore inscriptions to commemorate its founder.

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.
