: The Master Game

Presented by JEREMY JAMES
' It is naive to think that it is expedient (let alone possible) for a player striving for the top place in a tournament to play every game all out, putting all his creative effort into every encounter.' (Former World Champion and draw expert TIGRAN PETROSIAN)
A draw is offered and turned down with dramatic results in tonight's final of The Master Game. At stake is The Master Game Trophy and a first prize of £250.

: The Ascent of Man

A personal view by J. Bronowski in 13 programmes
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.
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 glamour 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.
It's a joy to have a series that conveys the elegance of theory, the precision of experiment and the craftsmanship of application in the scientific enterprise, along with the wonder, (NEW YORK TIMES)

Narrated by Sian Phillips with the voices of NEVILLE JASON
To mark the 100th anniversary of Andersen's death - a special Danish Television film

: To Die, To Live - The Survivors of Hiroshima

The dropping of the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima was the greatest single catastrophe man has ever inflicted upon man. But even from this clinical, impersonal mass-annihilation a great many people did come out alive - though burdened with guilt, fear, and with the danger of possible radiation after-effects.
To commemorate the day of the Hiroshima bomb, Horizon presents a film about the thoughts and feelings of the survivors. Based on interviews with a great many of them, it presents an impression of what it is like to go through the A-bomb experience.
How does man behave in a cataclysm? How can people, or even a whole city, live with - and live by - the memory of such a shattering event? And in what sense are we all survivors of Hiroshima '?

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.
