: THE BIOCHEMISTRY OF POISONING

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.

: G.B.S. AND THE COURT THEATRE

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.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
