: Horizon: A Newsday Revolution

There has been an electronic revolution in television news. It has affected the way news is gathered, presented and edited.

"Horizon" follows BBCtv news teams at home and abroad for just one day, to see how the new technology works: in the studio with Sue Lawley; at the White House with Tim Sebastian ; in the newsroom with the editors. How is the new technology changing the news you see on your screen? When Tuesday 22 March started, it looked like being an ordinary newsday. It didn't turn out that way.



Subject: Sue Lawley
Subject: Tim Sebastian
Narrator: Paul Vaughan
Film Editor: Christopher Woolley
Written and Produced by: Christopher Riley
"Horizon" Editor: Robin Brightwell

: Five Sculptors

Bill Woodrow
Since the Tate Gallery bought Twin-Tub with Guitar in 1982, Bill Woodrow's work has been a witty and unmistakable presence in British sculpture. His raw material is the detritus of consumer life: with hand-shears and pliers he spins a menagerie of bizarre images from the surface metal of discarded washing machines, spin-dryers, vacuum cleaners and car bonnets to create complex and darkly humorous sculptures.
Tonight Bill Woodrow gives a guided tour of his work, from early student experiments
(with floating twigs) to major recent pieces such as Hobo. Cameraman COUN WALDECK Producer JULIA CAVE

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.
