Seagulls on the Cable
' All the charisma of a used Kleenex says the British music press. but Liverpool band A Flock of Seagulls don't mind too much: they've still sold over a million copies of their first album and they're doing rather well in the USA. Steve Blacknell went to New York with them and took the chance to find out about cable television. Riverside presents a complete guide to New York's 27 channels, and takes a closer look at one of them, Music Television (MTV), the world's first 24-hour pop television channel. We catch some of the New Year celebrations on MTV when A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS shared the top billing with Duran Duran.

: Horizon: What Little Girls are Made Of

Why are there so few famous women scientists? Are there any inborn differences in ability or aptitude between men and women?

For over a century, starting with the phrenologists, male scientists have been searching for evidence to demonstrate female inferiority.

Dr Jan Harding, of the Centre for Science Education, studies the way girls and boys are steered into adopting different roles in life. In this "Horizon" she imagines a boy and a girl from a modern comprehensive transported into the past as victims of the scientists' experiments.

For the girl, the experiments become a recurring nightmare: no sooner is one kind of test found to be spurious than another even more bizarre ordeal is invented for her, and as each decade passes, she is surrounded by new voices of male prejudice. But perhaps the tables are about to be turned?

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.
