: Horizon: The Crab Nebula

The history of the Crab more closely resembles a tale of mystery and imagination than a sober scientific recital
When a leading astronomer said this ten years ago, even he could not have forecast the twists and turns in the plot of the detective story that were to follow. In the study of this one object in the sky we see reflected the whole of modern astronomy, and, in more human terms, the joy of scientists in tackling a never-ending puzzle. The story begins in the year 1054 when a Chinese astronomer saw a guest-star '- almost certainly the cataclysmic destruction of a star whose remains are now the Crab. It ends with the question: is this the death that makes life possible?
"A revealing insight into the work of the men and women who study the skies" (Daily Telegraph) "A fascinating study" (The Observer)

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.
