: The Master Game

This week's knockout chess game is a highly intriguing dash between two experts who specialise in the same opening -the fashionable Modern Defence. One has written two best-sellers on this opening, and the other used it to win the Junior Championship of Europe and so became the world's youngest-ever International Master. George Botterill

A personal view by J. Bronowski in 13 programmes
7: The Majestic Clockwork
' What would the world look like if I rode on a beam of light? '
If the world and its character could be clearly understood by two men only, they might well be Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein. They are connected by light, as DR BRONOWSKI shows in bringing their two worlds to life. The universe of Newton, clear, English, stately, like the music and the great buildings of his century ticking away with a fine clockwork mechanism; nicely regulated by laws. Then the quizzical world of Einstein whose direct truth and questions could turn the dignified universe upside-down in the interests of a clearer understanding. We ride with Einstein on his beam of light to end our journey in our own century.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
