A Prize Discovery
Cesar Milstein , a Cambridge scientist, shared the Nobel
Prize last year for one of the most far-reaching discoveries in biology. It will make vaccines cheaper and safer, give a new impetus to cancer research and help our understanding of new diseases like AIDS.
Milstein and his colleagues found how to grow human antibodies outside the body and in unlimited quantities. At first, the findings were largely ignored. Today the discovery is the basis of a new industry worth hundreds of millions of pounds.

Watch Me Move....
'America gave to the world two original art forms: one was jazz, the other was full character animation'
(CHUCK JONES)
In 1908, the comic strip artist WINSOR MCCAY brought to life, on film, his celebrated 'little Nemo' characters. The first words that appeared on the screen were 'Watch me move!' Tonight Arena salutes the pioneers of animation, in a festival of early cinema cartoons: funny, inventive and often astonishingly beautiful.
Including unique footage of Gertie the Dinosaur acting with her creator, McCay; the rise and fall of the first cartoon superstar, Felix the cat; the sexy antics of Betty Boob - later toned down by the censor; the earliest Silly Symphonies, Loonie Tunes and Merrie Melodies; and an exploration of the surreal and violent world of the brilliant TEX AVERY.
Contributing their memories, the creators and animators who gave us these still compelling images, including John Fitzsimmons

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.
