: Horizon

Inside Chernobyl Sarcophagus
Chernobyl Unit 4 exploded five years ago this week. The intensely radioactive ruins of the reactor now lie buried in the 'sarcophagus'. Much of it will be radioactive for more than 100,000 years. Also inside the sarcophagus is an elite team of Soviet scientists, working in areas of radiation that would be considered lethal in the west. They are driven by the urgent need to hunt down the 135 tonnes of uranium and plutonium, to discover whether a second accident could happen at
Chernobyl. The Horizon team are the first westerners allowed to film inside the sarcophagus. This is the story of the remarkable scientists dedicating their lives to working there. See panel below. Written and produced by Edward Bnffa Editor Jana Bennett

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.
