: With a Little Help from the Chip

Six programmes on how micro-technology can help disabled people to live more independent lives.
Christopher's Magic Cupboard Christopher is 4 years old.
He's bright, mischievous and full of life but he's severely physically handicapped. Now, micro-technology is beginning to change his life, enabling him to do things the rest of us take for granted - learning, playing, getting about, communicating, and being naughty for the first time in his life.
The 'chip' is very versatile: with it, blind people can read books, deaf people can use the telephone and people who couldn't speak or write at all can now make contact with the outside world.
Britain leads the world in the invention of micro-technology aids for disabled people. But can the miracle chip reach all those who need it?
Film editor JOHN BILLINGHAM Assistant producer GEORGE AUCKLAND
Producer ANNA JACKSON

: Commercial Breaks

Battle of the Blimps
There used to be just one name in the stately world of the airship: Goodyear blimps were a familiar sight in summer skies. Now all that has changed. A tiny British contender has emerged and has big ambitions - nothing less than the rebirth of the airship as a commercial proposition. But can the struggling Airship Industries of Cardington really challenge the mighty
Goodyear Corporation in the race for a multi-billion-dollar market?

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
