Where Are You Taking Us?


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
The first of four programmes presenting questions concerning science, scientists and the public.
1 : Towards the Superwoman
Does the fact that women have babies hold them back from high office in our society? Do their hormones make them less reliable than men? Is the menopause to blame for reducing their capabilities at what would otherwise be the prime of life? What are the answers to these questions now that we have safe childbirth and totally effective contraception, when menstrual tensions can be eliminated and the menopause itself exploited for long-term advantages not available to men?
Michael Smee talks to gynaecologists. endocrinologists. sociologists, experts on ageing and the theorists of women's liberation, in an attempt to assess the biological factors in the position of women in society. Producer MEG SHEFFIELD

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.
