by R. A. Peters , F.R.S., Whitley Professor of Biochemistry in the University of Oxford
For several years Professor Peters and his colleagues have been studying the behaviour of a particular poison associated with certain parts of Africa. This specific study has, however, broadened into a more fundamental study of ' lethal synthesis,' as Professor Peters described in his recent Croonian Lecture to the Royal Society. In this talk he shows how some apparently unrelated topics fit together and lead to an explanation of fundamental biological processes.
Talk by Sir Lewis Casson
The Vedrenne-Barker seasons (1904-7) at the Court Theatre, London, established Bernard Shaw 's fame as a dramatist. Sir Lewis Casson discusses the way in which Shaw's plays developed the style of acting for which the Court Theatre became famous, and considers whether the Court Theatre in its turn influenced the work of Shaw as a playwright.
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.
