: Monkeys Without Tails

The Royal Institution, London, Annual Christmas Lectures to Young People by Dr John Napier
1: Man has a very short neck and no tail
During the next few days JUDY, a chimpanzee from Twycross Zoo , will help DR NAPIER with his lectures, and in the first talk there is an explanation of why it is that human beings are the most intelligent of the primates.
There is very little difference between ourselves and the chimpanzees or gorillas. Like us they have no tails, and, zoologically speaking, they are our closest relatives.
Director BRIAN JOHNSON
Presented for television by ALAN SLEATH

This week's star guest Goldie Hawn
Promotion for Goldie Hawnleading alumnus (or is it alumna?) of Laugh-In when she returns as tonight's star guest, no less. Things probably haven't changed too much in the meantime, and her fans will hope she hasn't either. Maybe she'll still get her lines deliciously wrong, guest or no guest, and still be the undumbest dumb blonde in the business. But who cares? We'll love her just the same.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
