: Horizon

Assault on the Male
Scientists estimate sperm counts have fallen by half over the last 50 years. Testicular cancer and malformations of male organs have become increasingly common.
Biologists have found evidence of alarming abnormalities in fish, alligators and other wildlife which point to the animals becoming "feminised". From the swamps of Florida to a Boston laboratory where cancerous breast tissue revealed that chemicals were leaking from plastic containers and acting like female hormones on the cells, to Britain's reservoirs and medical clinics, Horizon tracks down the possible causes.
Since this programme was first shown, its alarming findings have been used in briefings of members of the US Congress and has led to environmental campaigns around the world. Producer Deborah Cadbury 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.

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.
