: Local Heroes

In the last instalment of the series, viewers get the chance to show off their ideas for hovercraft, ice lenses, scientific musical instruments and bar-snack separators - all responses to the challenges inspired by the scientific heroes examined by Adam Hart-Davis in the last six weeks. Hart-Davis also heads for the East Midlands, where he turns his bicycle into a spinning machine to demonstrate the invention of Richard Arkwright , whose own version replaced 96 skilled workers with just one operator. George Green, a miller from Nottingham, produced a brilliant and revolutionary mathematical tool that is still used to solve problems in maths and physics today. What was his inspiration? The final hero of the series is Isaac Newton. In his house at Woolsthorpe in Lincolnshire, Hart-Davis wonders if the great man might have invented the cat flap. Hart-Davis returns in the autumn to present a series on Roman technology - What Did the Romans Do for Us? Producer Marty Jopson ; Executive producers Paul Bader and Mike Greenwood (S)

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.
