The Sunspot Mystery
Sunspots are mysterious magnetic blemishes on the surface of the sun, many times larger than the earth. They come and go in cycles which last 11 years. Scientists in Skylab have discovered that sunspots are directly related to the solar wind, which streams from the sun, bending and twisting the earth's magnetic field.
But physicists are now diving back into history to see if events on earth correlate with the sunspot cycle. What happened, for example, When there were no sunspots, during the time of Louis XIV? One correlation is clear - the present drought in the Western Plains of the USA is only one in a cycle which matches sunspot activity.
Could sunspots be affecting the dramatic global changes of climate that we are seeing now?

: The Book Programme

John Cheever
'I asked my son, who was then 19, if he would mind me dedicating the book to him, a book about drug addiction, incarceration, homosexuality and fratricide. He said " Not at all" and I was very pleased.'
JOHN CHEEVER'S latest book, Falconer, was a huge popular and critical success in the USA - it's a brilliant comic account of a university professor's experiences in prison. At his home near New York, Cheever talks to Robert Robinson about Falconer, about his own experience of confinement on a cure for his alcoholism, and about his life and writing; One doesn't write a novel saying this is about life and rebirth or about love and death. Novels are about men and women and children and dogs.'

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.
