: Horizon

Hunt for the Doomsday Asteroid
— Now that the Cold War era has passed, the _ Star Wars technology developed in America could be used to destroy meteors big enough to threaten life on earth.
"Scientists have calculated that death by meteorite is as likely as being killed in a plane crash," says producer
Tim Haines. "But the sort of rocks which kill a quarter of the world's population only arrive every few million years."
More than 150 large craters have been identified around the world, and evidence is growing to link these with incidents of mass extinction - of dinosaurs, for example. Alarmingly, too, satellites designed to monitor nuclear launches have been fooled by meteors detonating In the outer atmosphere. A false alarm raised in a politically sensitive part of the world could lead to an international disaster.
Horizon looks at the implications and politics behind the desire to save the world.

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.
