: Horizon: Worlds in Collision

Dr Immanuel Velikovsky is the biggest growing cult figure in the USA. Aged 77, he's an unorthodox scientist who believes that a mere few hundred years before Christ was born Venus almost collided with the Earth. Mountain ranges were formed, seas boiled and the world stood still.
He also believes that man, because he lived through these catastrophes, has an urge to repeat them. Only by understanding the reasons for this urge can we hope to control our compulsion to destroy ourselves.
Few scientists take Velikovsky seriously. But his supporters point to the recent American space probes which seem to confirm his startling predictions about the nature of the moon and the planets Venus, Mars and Jupiter.
People have begun to wonder. Other men have been scorned by the establishment for unpopular ideas. Is Velikovsky a crank? Or is he another Galileo?

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.
