Dear Sir,
I have just watched the first programme in the above-mentioned comedy series.
I was in the war you know. Is this what British comedy has come to??? This is obviously German comedy. It makes me ill. My dog is a pensioner and we have a green hedge.
Yours disgustingly,

: Horizon: Biology at War: A Plague in the Wind

Horizon begins its new season with an investigation of the sordid 40-year history of germ warfare, a history rich in allegation, inhumanity, cover-ups, perversion of justice and blatant use of unwitting civilian populations in the West for biological experimentation.
Today military laboratories continue to work with deadly organisms like anthrax, plague and lassa fever. Is it 'defensive biology' as they claim, or offensive germ warfare in disguise? And now the latest techniques of genetic engineering for viruses and bacteria raise the spectre of even deadlier biological weapons. We could be perched on the brink of a new biological arms race - one that will include Third World countries, and even terrorist organisations.

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.
