: Prof. Winifred Cullis: Health and Commonsense: A Healthy Mind in a Healthy Body

In this, the last of her series of talks, Professor Cullis will sum up the ideas that she has tried to expound; how general physical and mental efficiency may be attained, in the course of the ordinary daily round, by paying attention to such elementary things as eating and drinking, breathing and the allocation of one's work. It now remains for those who have listened with interest to these talks to put into practice the precepts that they have heard.

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.
