: Horizon: The Chopper

Helicopter: helix - spiral; pterona wing. To the pioneers it looked easy, but it's not. The development of a machine that could screw itself into the air vertically has been fraught with difficulty and danger. It did not really begin until about 1940, yet only 25 years later the helicopter was the main-stay of the US Army in Vietnam. In the cryptic terminology of GIs a disabled helicopter 'glides like a grand piano'; and a number of recent accidents have tragically underlined the vulnerability of this unlikely and extraordinarily complex flying machine.

But now the helicopter is on the verge of a major change in the layout of its controls and rotor systems which should make helicopters of the future safer, faster, larger and, for the US Army that pays the bills, more deadly. Tonight Horizon lifts off in search of the secrets of vertical flight, and finds an unfulfilled dream we now call 'the chopper'.

There are many faiths but the spirit is one, in me, in you and in every man. (LEO TOLSTOY) The last of a series of films in which six people reflect upon the faith they practise. Tony Bayfield
TONY BAYFIELD is the Rabbi of a Reform Synagogue in Weybridge, Surrey. ' Judaism is built on trust. It is only through trusting and doing that a Jew finds his path to God. The deed has to precede everything else. And he who sits waiting for something is lost.'

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.
