: The Education Programme

Advancing A-levels?
Industrialists and teachers, universities and employers seem to agree wholeheartedly on one thing: England's post-16 academic education is far too narrow. Are A-levels an immense and unnecessary hurdle for all but the top
20 per cent of school children? Does the present system create illiterate art students? Do we put too much emphasis on specialist academic achievement at this age? Martin Young looks at existing alternatives to
A-levels and asks what is the best education for the majority of Britain's 16-19 year-olds.

: Horizon

The Poison that Waits
Something unique and fatal lurks on the Pacific island of Guam. It could have implications for the hundreds of thousands who suffer from the diseases of ageing, such as senile dementia (or Alzheimer's disease) and Parkinson's disease in Britain. On Guam, these devastating diseases strike decades earlier and 100 times more frequently than elsewhere. For 40 years, scientists tried to find the cause: a virus, aluminium in the water, something in the food .. ? They got nowhere. Then in 1982, the research took an unexpected twist. A team, largely English, began re-assess an old, discarded theory about a slow poison. They are close to a breakthrough.

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.
