Presented by Professor Heinz Wolff Third Heat:
The Fork Lift
This week the programme goes to the Scottish
Exhibition Centre for a show that lives up to the series title. The three teams have to shift some 500 eggs as fast as possible using a fork-lift truck. But that is the easy part; the difficult part is building the fork-lift truck in the first place. Guest judge

: Gardeners' World

from Cardiff with Geoff Hamilton and Clay Jones
Take a level site and by clever use of tall subjects transform it into a garden that not only looks bigger than it is, but also has fresh and interesting views around every corner.
Bryan and Elizabeth Hibbard 's garden is not without problems though, set as it is in a frost pocket, and the rockery they have made is also proving a bit of a problem.

: The Healing Arts

Nine documentaries that look at many unusual aspects of medicine.
4: George Vithoulkas - Homoeopath
Almost everyone has heard of homoeopathy, yet very few people outside the discipline understand it. There is little or no conventional scientific basis for its belief that like cures like, yet homoeopaths say it is the second most widely-used medical system in the world. Homoeopaths question the patients in detail about the mental, emotional and physical aspects of their lives as well as about the illness, and prescribe accordingly.
George Vithoulkas is widely accepted as an outstanding practitioner and teacher. Narrator Roger Mills

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.
