: Something Else

The fifth in a series of seven programmes made by young people for young people. Tonight's programme comes from Londonderry. ' If anyone's looking forward to a few bombs and a bit of rioting, they've got the wrong show. This is "something else" from Northern Ireland; golden metal under the ground, silver suits in the streets, and a revolutionary new aid to prevent sex discrimination (all we can tell you is that it's big and red and you stick it on your head). With music from Ian Dury and the Blockheads and Derry band The Sect.'

: The Flying Boats

The second of three programmes
In the 1930s the world was opened up for airline passengers and the flying boat took pride of place in the development of new routes. First came the largest aircraft in the world, the 12-engined German Dornier flying boat, soon to be followed by the graceful Empire flying boats of Imperial Airways. David Lomax continues the story until 1939 when the transatlantic service was started, only to be sharply interrupted by war.

The Fat in the Fire
It is not true that fat adults necessarily eat more than thin ones. It is not true that an overfed baby will become a fat adult. So why do some people stay thin and others get fat?
In trying to answer this question, scientists have to date concentrated on what we eat - how we control our calorie intake. Now attention is turning to the output side of the equation-the calories we burn off in the form of heat. Recent research suggests that special fat cells (brown fat) may, ironically, help control weight by burning up surplus food. So those born with a defective brown fat system would tend to lay down any surplus food as the more common white fat, and so become overweight. If the theory is correct, could drugs be discovered to stimulate the brown fat cells and so help fat people get thin again? Narrator DR PHILIP JAMES
Essential viewing for all those sad fatties on crush diets which never seem to work. (DAILY MAIL) Editor SIMON CAMPBELL-JONES

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.
