: Horizon: The Day it Rained Periwinkles

Balls of fire that pass through walls, torrents of periwinkles, gigantic unknown sea creatures, mysterious glowing lights m the night sky.
There has never been a time when men did not report seeing strange things. The reaction was usually a mixture of curiosity and fear. But how can science study these rare, improbable occurrences that are short-lived and usually witnessed by untrained, highly susceptible observers?
In the 18th century the French Academy of Sciences refused to believe in the existence of meteorites. Might we not be making the same mistake with sea monsters and unidentified flying objects? Certainly they pose present-day scientists with a dilemma. They raise such questions as what is acceptable evidence? What is an experiment?
Tonight Horizon looks at some of these phenomena that have baffled and irritated scientists for centuries, and considers how science can deal with them.

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.
