: Horizon

Too Close to the Sun
Five years ago, Professors Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons claimed to have reproduced nuclear fusion in little more than a test tube. It was the ultimate dream - limitless, free, safe energy from one of the world's most abundant resources: water.
But within months leading physicists had dismissed their discovery as delusion or worse. Horizon examines one of the bitterest controversies in science, which continues to divide scientists today. Producer Deborah Cadbury Editor Jana Bennett

: The Exploratory

At Bristol's hands-on science museum, the Exploratory, 40 scientific experts were brought together and given video access to more than 30 years of BBC science programmes. Among them was Dr Martin Fleischmann , featured in tonight's Horizon.
Their group discussions, arguments and debates on subjects of current scientific concern, have been marshalled into four programmes, broadcast nightly in this, British Science Week. Contributors are able to choose their own evidence from the BBC archives and call up clips on screen exactly when they want to.
In the first discussion,
Strangers in a Strange Land, a case is argued against the scientific establishment. Roy Porter is in the chair.

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.
