Isambard Kingdom Brunei (1806-1859)
At the age of 20, Brunei was engineer in charge of the Thames Tunnel, the first tunnel ever driven under a river, now used by the Underground. At 27 he designed the Great Western Railway, completed from London to Bristol when he was 35. He also built the first trans-Atlantic steamship, the first screw-propelled liner, and the Great Eastern, each in turn by far the largest ships to sail the seas.

The Great American Theme Park

A Risk Business Special Report on the world's most extravagant fairgrounds.
In which Michael Rodd sets out in search of the ultimate fairground ride. In two of America's sunshine states, California and Florida, he finds himself taking part in a high-wire act, in a Wild West shoot-out, and in the breath-taking twists and turns of a 400-foot aquatic Cresta run. Participation, it seems, is the name of the Theme Park game.
Every year the impresarios introduce new ways of luring customers through the turnstiles of their particular brand of money-spinning fantasy. It's an ' arms race' in which the principal weapons are million-dollar roller coasters, breath-taking machines designed to carry the customer cork-screwing and gyrating in apparent defiance of the laws of gravity.
But the bills can escalate as rapidly as the thrills, and Parks can plunge from giddying heights to sickening depths almost as rapidly as their pleasure-seeking passengers. It's an industry where holidays are the most frantic time of the year, and where pleasure turns out to carry a very slender profit margin.

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.
