5-How Animals Learn
Written by Patrick Impey in consultation with the late Dr. D. A. Hanson
The work of various scientists is quoted or explained by Edward Brandon , F. R. Buckley , John Chandos , J. Hubert Leslie , and Paul Martin
Animals are equipped with a rudimentary instinctive intelligence as soon as they are born, but they can also learn. How do they learn ? Research through psychology reveals learning by trial and error; physiological research, the theory of automatic learning by habit, the conditioned reflex. The theory of ' insight ' is discussed, and the mentality of apes considered, for example the use by chimpanzees of symbolism, language, and token money.

: CHOPIN

Twenty-four Preludes, Op. 28 played by Nina Milkina (piano)
What a wealth of fancy and imagination went to the making of these Preludes I The first one, with its snatches of lyrical melody, is followed by the one in A minor, ' a low and tremulous and melancholy song.' This is exchanged for the grace and sparkle of the Prelude in G-that captivating study for the left hand-and the well-known one in E minor, with its expressive melody accompanied by reiterated chords. And so on, throughout almost the entire range of the emotions. Among the less familiar ones are the vivacious Prelude in B major; the lovely miniature nocturne in P sharp; the one in E flat minor (which foreshadows so strikingly the finale of the Sonata in B flat minor); No. 23, limpid and charming; and the final Prelude in D minor, unforgettable in its brilliance and passion. It was after the Preludes were published that Schumann described Chopin as the boldest, the proudest poet-soul of today.' Harold Rutland

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.

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.
