: SCIENCE, MEN, AND ENERGY

The Body as a Machine
Like a motor car, the body needs fuel for energy ; oxygen to enable it to ' burn ' the fuel; and a transmission system which enables it to use the energy where it is required. Professor Bullough uses this analogy to describe digestion, respiration, and the way in which the blood stream carries food to where it is needed

: OTAKI SCHOLAR

A programme to illustrate one of the links between Scotland and the Commonwealth
In March 1917, somewhere in the Atlantic, the German raider Moewe sank the freighter Otaki, belonging to the New Zealand Shipping Company. The captain, Archibald Bisset-Smith , who went down with his ship, was a former pupil of Robert Gordon 's College, Aberdeen. In his memory his relatives provided a shield, now known as the Otaki Shield, to be awarded annually to an outstanding pupil of the college. To commemorate the bravery of the crew, the New Zealand Shipping Company offer a free passage to New Zealand to each winner of the shield, and the New Zealand Government add hospitality for a five weeks' tout of the islands.

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.

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.
