Science's universal constants seem to ue changing – d nrocess that could lead, ultimately, to the break-up of everything. That prospect may be many billions of years in the future but Professor John Barrow has detected the first signs of changes to the "fine structure constant" - the strength of the force holding atoms together. Quentin Cooper asks what this means for our understanding of the universe and whether inconsistent constants are causing a confidence crisis in cosmology. Producer Michelle Martin

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.
