: Horizon

The Incredible Machine
It looks like a deep and mossy cave, but it is no more than a pore on the human skin, magnified 3,500 times. And what appears to be a coral reef is in fact the tip of t"ne tongue.
The camera watches the movement of the vocal chords; peers down glowing, breathing coiyidors into the depths of the lungs; and shows -us the vibration of tiny bones within the ear so that we actually see sounds being heard. Man's own anatomy has intrigued him through the ages. But now, remarkable camera techniques reveal a startling perspective on how we are made.

The Men Who Made the Movies
For the next two weeks BBC2 highlights the work of Raoul Walsh-director of many of the greatest action films of the 1930s and 1940s.
Raoul Walsh worked with most of the famous stars of the period, including Humphrey Bogart , James Cagney , George Raft , Edward G. Robinson , Errol Flynn , and gave John Wayne his first acting part - and his screen name. In this programme he reminisces about his career-his debut as an actor in Birth of a Nation, his early silent films and his big hits of the 1940s, including some of the best gangster pictures in Hollywood history. With excerpts from What Price Glory, The Big Trail, The Roaring Twenties, High Sierra, They Died With Their Boots On, Desperate Journey, Gentleman Jim , Northern Pursuit, Objective, Burma!, White Heat, The Bowery, Cockeyed World and The Strawberry Blonde. Narrated by CLIFF ROBERTSON

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.
