: Horizon: Hi-Tech a la française

The world's fastest train; a rocket - the Ariane - to rival the US Space Shuttle; a highly efficient nuclear power industry that sells electricity to Britain; and the world's most advanced digital telephone system. What connects them? They're all French.

In the last 25 years France has changed dramatically from a rural, almost peasant, land into a wealthy modern economy and a world leader in high technology. With the French elections looming, "Horizon" tells the story of how this remarkable transformation has taken place, and asks if there's anything that the British can learn from the French.

: Maestro

Rod Laver
So who was the best 'lefty' of them all? For tennis fans whose memories go back a couple of decades, there is little doubt - 'Rocket' Rod Laver. Certainly his achievement in completing two grand slams is without parallel: he is the only man to have won the Australian,
French, British and US titles all in the same year - on two occasions. In the seven years between his slams, Laver followed the path trodden by his fellow Australians
Lew Hoad , Ken Rosewall and Fred Stolle before turning professional. These were the 'wilderness years', a limbo between the virgin 'amateur' of 1962 and the winner-take-all 'player' of 1969. Barry Davies talks to Laver about those traumatic years and the important influences in his life.

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.
