: The Ascent of Man

A personal view by J. Bronowski
The Hidden Structure Fire and flame are the elements of magic and of science, as Dr Bronowski examines man's probing of the hidden structure below the visible world. The programme follows the beginnings of chemistry; from the techniques of ancient metallurgy, the casting of the great Shang bronzes of China and the ritual forging of the Samurai swords, to the mystical searchings of the alchemists.

Riding the Stack
One year ago this week, the world watched with horror as the Challenger space shuttle and its crew of seven disappeared in a fireball.
Before the accident, risk was a dirty word in NASA. But to the shuttle's crews and to its designer, Maxime Faget, it was, and still remains, an experimental rocket plane.
Attitudes have changed, and now NASA allows the astronauts themselves to reveal, with unprecedented frankness, the long-term risks of Riding the Stack.

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.
