The Royal Institution
Annual Christmas Lectures to Young People
3: A Leaf from Nature
This third lecture of the series starts off as a piece of cake and ends with super-technology, as a laser pulse times a chemical reaction to the nearest millionth of a milldonth of a second. The connection is the intricate chemistry of plants: the starting point for nature's way of turning solar energy into useful work - the food chain.
Sir George Porter looks below the surface of the leaf to shew his young audience the molecular dance that turns sunlight into food.

: Worldwide

Television in Black Africa
Every Monday night the Jericho Community Centre in Nairobi is packed out. There's wrestling on television. The fights are imported from the West, and very old, but no one minds. This is the viewers' top entertainment of the week. Every morning in Niger, one of the poorest countries in the world, children file into a straw hut in the bush to learn how to read and write via television.
In the second of Worldwide's three-part look at television in Black Africa, Richard Kershaw reports on how the medium is being used to entertain and educate its vast public.

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.
