: The Natural History of a Sunbeam

The Royal Institution
Annual Christmas Lectures to Young People
6: Survival Under the Sun
The history of man's use of solar energy has been the slow story of a species groping towards a way of doing what green leaves have been doing effortlessly all along-making chemical fuel from sun-beams.
Sir George Porter concludes his series of Christmas lectures by suggesting a new direction for research. As well as better solar panels, why not better imitations of the leaf? He invites his young audience to look forward to a future when man can make not only electricity but chemical fuels, too, direct from solar energy.

A Smile for the Crocodile
The crocodile is the world's largest living reptile and has a reputation for being the most dangerous. It is true certain species eat people, but now research is revealing the crocodile in a fresh light. It can slow its body functions to the point where the heart beats only four times a minute. It spends much time caring for its young, and recently the mother crocodile was observed to carry her young in her jaws.
Today, apart from the American alligator, all species of crocodile are in danger of extinction. If they are not shot for their hides, their habitat is destroyed for agricultural use. What are the chances of survival for this remarkable animal?

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.
