: The Ascent of Man

Another chance to see this personal view by J. Bronowski 10: World within World
To see the world in a grain of sand,
And heaven in a wild flower;
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour
(WILLIAM BLAKE )
From the echoing vaults of a great Polish salt-mine DR BRONOWSKI embarks on the most fantastic journey of the 20th century, to the hidden world inside the atom. He tells the story of the men and ideas that gave concrete expression to the invisible, intangible structure that lies beneath all matter. The sunny quiet of Niels Bohr 's garden, the clamour of great reactors and the silence of a Vienna cemetery are stopping points on the journey that ends in the fires of a neutron star, deep in space.
Film editor JOHN CAMPBELL Producer DICK GILLING
Series editor ADRIAN MALONE
Fully illustrated book, available from booksellers, price £4.75

: Europa

In 1066, on the eve of the Battle of Hastings, a comet appeared. Seeing it, William the Conqueror is reported to have told his soldiers 'that is a bad omen for the English' and went on to defeat them. The death of Julius Caesar , the ravages of Attila the Hun, the fall of Constantinople were all linked with the sightings of comets.
Down the centuries, comets have been seen as the harbingers of doom and disaster. With the appearance of a new comet, Kohoutek, West German Television investigates the myth and sees how much of the old superstition still exists.

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.
