: Pandora's Box

The Engineers' Plot
The Communists who came to power in 1917 believed science had the power to create a new world. This film in the series that uses archive material to explore the cultural impact of 20th-century science, tells the story of what happened to that dream. It reveals how the grandest experiment in history ended by creating a bizarre, bewildering world for millions of people in the former Soviet Union. Footage includes a Soviet choir singing of the new rational world to come; two men who planned toothbrushes for the whole country; and a planner who tells how she decided scientifically that the people wanted platform shoes, only to discover that they were out of fashion by the time the factory was built.

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.
