To most people, computers are some sort of electronic brains... machines with minds of their own. And they have a nagging fear that they just could get out of control. With their influence in our lives spreading rapidly - they already affect everything from the delivery of our daily bread to the registering of our motoring trespasses - are the fears justified? Do we have any cause for concern? Or is the computer simply an invaluable aid to progress as the technocrats would prefer us to believe? You can express your views and put your questions to Gerry Fisher, President of the British Computer Society, and John Gwilliam, one of its members.

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.
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.
