: Horizon: The Ghost in Your Genes

9/9. Could the dodgy pie your grandfather once ate be the root of your stomach problems? The answer's yes, according to scientists who have found a whole new layer to our genes beyond DNA, the very cornerstone on which modern biology sits. With it comes startling first evidence that this can cause heritable effects in humans. The controversial science of epigenetics represents a major shift in thinking from the view that DNA carries all our heritable information, and that nothing an individual does in their lifetime will be biologically passed to their children.
A new series is scheduled to start in January.
Focus magazine: £3.25. The new issue, which goes on sale Thursday 27 October, includes an article on epigenetics

: Underground Britain

9/10. Hardman. Essex boxer Dominic Negus , who once head-butted Olympic super-heavyweight champ Audley Harrison , also works as hired muscle, collecting debts for businessmen. For Negus the job becomes personal when he discovers that his 84-year-old father, who's ill in hospital, is owed EIO,000 by a car dealer. An extraordinary and violent confrontation follows, but when his father dies soon after and Negus himself is savagely attacked, he considers early retirement. Following Negus through six turbulent months, the film asks what price he pays for his violent profession. Director Nick Godwin

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.
