The Malvern Link
Ever since World War II, military science has dominated the nation's scientific endeavour, and today the commitment to sustain an independent British weapons industry remains our overriding scientific priority.
But how good is our military science and technology, and what is its impact on the nation's overall scientific performance? For the first time on television we look inside this closed world, talk to the people who design and build the weapons, meet our top weapons scientists and visit Britain's key electronic warfare laboratory -
RSRE Malvern. The Royal Signals and Radar Establishment was the birthplace of radar and today is carrying out research into new electronic warfare systems for the 1990s and beyond. It is also the centre of an experiment, 'the Malvern link', which could have a decisive effect on the future shape of the nation's science and technology.

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.
