: Imagined Worlds

Five personal accounts of recent changes in scientific ideas
2: The Day the Earth Moved Dan McKenzie , FRS
Fifteen years ago there was a dramatic change in our understanding of the Earth. Geologists learned how and why volcanoes occur, how mountains are built and why the continents have their present shape: in short, the World suddenly made sense.
Then aged 25, DR DAN MCKENZIE was one of the architects of the new theory. He recalls what it was like to be a young turk at the centre of that rare event - scientific revolution.

: Horizon: The Future - Made in Japan?

Giant computers that can think like human beings; fusion power reactors producing boundless energy and mini space shuttles bustling around space colonies. These are all part of the Japanese Government's dream for a future they aim to dominate.
To get them there, they're educating the next generation of Japanese with' an efficiency approaching the programming of computers.

The West has already seen one industry after another seriously threatened by Japanese competition. Are they now going to do for the crucial technologies of tomorrow what they've already done for cars and. calculators? Or is there a flaw in the machine?

Horizon examines Japan's attempts to be number one in the 90s and asks - could they be finally overreaching themselves?

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.
