: The Man Alive Report: The Inventors. Why Didn't I Think of That?

This week: The Inventors. Why Didn't I Think of That?
We don't know who invented the wheel, but Gillette was a travelling salesman; Dunlop was a vet; Biro was an artist. Their inventions made fortunes - and changed our lives.
But, today, the lone inventor-perhaps working away in a shed at the bottom of his garden - is often dismissed as a crank. Nowadays, most inventions come from research teams in big industrial firms. Nevertheless, there are still a few loners ... and Britain has always had more than her share. But, nowadays, do we care enough to encourage and back them with private or public funds? Too often, it seems, since the war, the products - and rewards - of our inventive genius have gone overseas.
In the last of the current series of The Man Alive Report, Harold Williamson meets British inventors who have spent years trying to convince manufacturers - who, too often, have strong and vested interests in the status quo. And Nick Ross talks with financiers and industrialists about the problems of the lone inventor in the hard commercial world.

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.
