EEC - On the Brink?
' Stagnation, decline and escapism ' is how MAX VAN DER STOEL , Foreign Minister of the Netherlands, described the current mood in the Common Market. This month it comes of age. For 21 years the European Economic Community has been committed by the Treaty of Rome to strive for free and open competition. There is, however, little evidence that this has been achieved. Prices throughout the EEC still vary enormously. Companies are still unwilling to work in harmony and perhaps even the desire to achieve economic integration and free competition has gone.
Tonight James Bellini examines whether the Common Market is an economic ideal that cannot, or is not, being achieved.

: Horizon

Happy Catastrophe
Are catastrophes avoidable? Are wars or even family rows inevitable? What does an inflation explosion and a moth's wing have in common?
Tonight's Horizon shows that surprisingly we may have come much closer to being able to avoid catastrophes through a discovery in mathematics - Catastrophe theory. This suggests that wars, cracks in metal and even flowers all unfold in the same way. The theory describes the shape of all possible unfoldings and its applications may be able to help us navigate through life with a little more understanding and compassion.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
