: Ripples in the Ether

Royal Institution Lectures
5 : But Electrons aren't Coloured! So far Geoffrey Gouriet , Chief Engineer, BBC Research and Development, has shown us that electric signals can easily ' see' light and shade; but how much more difficult it must be to reproduce the subtleties of colour.
He now demonstrates how electric signals can measure and transmit accurate colour pictures.

: Web of Life

The first of six films that show the beautiful intertwinings of the living things on our varied earth. The Living River
Eel, shrew, caddis, vole, pike, dipper, trout -not just a random mixture of animals but an integrated community intricately linked to the living river.
Filmed underwater, a dipper is a bird of silver that swims with its wings; a caddis-fly larva builds a web like a spider to catch food. Each creature has its own ways, its own delicate niche, and yet through the seasons they all exist together in an ever-changing balance that is only too easy for us to topple.

: Fanatics

People with unusual enthusiasms. Man of Letters
For more than 50 years this man has been intrigued by the written word: not the sense of it, but what lies behind the sense, what sort of person the writer really is. Through FRANCIS FIELD'S eyes the writing of the famous is fascinating-especially when the celebrities are anonymous!

: Horizon

Epidemic
Flu is already taking its annual toll. In 1918 it killed 150,000 people; in 1973 it will kill thousands more.
The dangers from epidemics in this country are more serious than we like to think. Britain is under siege. Holiday makers returning from abroad are introducing typhoid, malaria, smallpox. At home we are annually producing 10,000 cases of dysentery and 12,000 of infective jaundice. One in three chickens is infected with food poisoning germs and a quarter of all meat is soiled with animal excreta.
So just how safe are we? Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN

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.
