: Horizon

The Cancer Detectives of Lin Xian
A team of Chinese; scientists is trying to unravel the mysteries of cancer. They are working in the remote Lin Xian Valley in central China where the ¾-million peasants have over 100 times the normal rate of oesophageal cancer.
They have uncovered an eerie situation in which the soil, the local plants and fungi, the ways of cooking, all combine to turn the food into powerful cancer-causing chemicals the peasants' stomachs within an hour.
Their work showed them that there was no single cause for the cancer, but with only partial knowledge they had to begin a major campaign to eradicate cancer in the valley.
The team at Lin Xian want to rejoin the international scientific world from which they have been cut off since the Cultural Revolution. As a result, they took the Horizon team into their lives and discussed openly the Chinese approach to medicine.

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.
