Arrows of Time

It is possible that you could hear this programme before it is transmitted...
There are three arrows of time: atomic, electromagnetic, cosmological... which is forward and which is backward is a matter of convenience.
What is time? Do we move through it, or does it flow past us? Do clocks really tick faster at the bottom of a coal mine than at the surface? If you are walking down a street and suddenly everything changes - your clothes, the buildings around you, the smell of the air - have you slipped back in time, or...? Many questions on aspects of Time are put by Leslie Smith.
Answering are Dr. J.M. Stewart of the Dept of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge; Dr. Peter Fenwick, consultant neurophysiologist; Dr Lyall Watson, biologist and writer. With Alan Garner, Ruth Pitter, Gordon Honeycombe, Janet Augustin and Athene Williams.

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.
