: Horizon Special: Halley's Comet - The Apparition

This week, on its way in towards the Sun, Halley's Comet is closer to Earth than it has been for 75 years. Even so, you'll need binoculars to see it or, far better, "Horizon". This celestial guide tells you what comets are made of, where they come from, how they are predicted and how dangerous they are. Past comets may have destroyed almost all life on Earth - yet without them mankind might never have evolved.

Plus: the winner of the space race to reach a comet first and the odd story of how Halley's Comet was rediscovered with the help of two razor blades.

: The Triumph of the West

A view of world history in 13 parts by JOHN ROBERTS 12: The Decline of the West In the first half of this century a stable world of optimism, sanity and progress seemed to go mad. Men lost faith in the civilisation of the West. Its old heartland, Europe, was wracked by wars (1914-18, 1939-45) and leadership passed to America. Russia became separated from it and hostile. Economic failure, the rolling up of colonial empires, fragmentation in the arts and new discoveries - both in science and in the new science of the mind, psychology - all added to the unease. And in the East,
Japan, first militarily, then economically, became a superpower. The title of OSWALD SPENGLER 'S book
The Decline of the West seemed to catch the mood of the times and it sold in millions. But is the day of the West really done?

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.
