: Horizon

nTutankhamun's Fireball. Scattered in the sand of the Sahara are chunks of glass so old that they predate the ancient Egyptians - but the origin of this matter has been a scientific enigma, ever since a piece was found in Tutankhamun's tomb. Now a team of scientists has set out to finally solve the mystery. Their quest takes them on a perilous journey into the Great Sand Sea and the wastes of Siberia to gather evidence, and on to the test site of the world's first atomic bomb in New Mexico. What their search uncovers is a devastating new natural phenomenon - yet another cosmic threat to inspire the Hollywood scriptwriters. Producer Cynthia Page; Series editor Andrew Cohen Lost in Egypt - Decoding the Papyri is at 11.20pm

: Lost in Egypt - Decoding the Papyri: BBC4 on BBC2

It was an archaeological discovery in Egypt that was to revolutionise our attitudes to the Ancients. More than half a million documents - which included not only the lost works of Greek literary giants such as Homer, Sophocles and Sappho, but also records of daily life - offered a unique peak into a lost world. Last year, a century after they first came to light, cutting-edge technology developed by Nasa helped reveal some of the most significant finds to date.

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.

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.
