The Body in Question

Synopsis

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.
Brute Machine by JONATHAN MILLER
How do we move our limbs? What happens when we pick up a glass of brimming water? Jonathan Miller traces our understanding of the nervous system. Using guns, toys, explosives, electronics, music and important experiments from the past, he reveals a human ' wiring diagram' of enormous complexity and a brain capable of delegating whole areas of nervous activity to the spinal cord on its own. For example. Dudley Moore finds to his astonishment that his piano playing is not as consciously controlled as he originally thought it was.

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.
