What causes cancer? This remains a mystery despite decades of effort. The reason may well be that it is caused only by a precise sequence of events. Regions of high cancer incidents such as Shanghai, where liver tumours are very common, and the Scottish Highlands, where cows suffer from an ' epidemic ' of cancer, give a handle to study how various factors in the environment can interact to produce cancer.

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.
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.
