A Matter of Life and Death Introduced by Geoff Watts
Sir Fred Hoyle earlier this year challenged the view that life arose here on earth billions of years ago. He contended that primitive organisms drifted around the solar system, carried along on fragments of solid material, and that they eventually rained down onto the surface of the earth.
In a further development of these ideas, Sir Fred suggests that this process may be happening even today and that such seeds of life from outer space could be the causes of the world's major epidemics.

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.
