: What's in a Face?: Tuesday's Documentary

The unspoken and sometimes hidden language of the human face.
There's more in your face than just the eyes, nose and mouth with which you were born. Scientists are beginning to understand how facial expressions form a language of their own. Without realising it we may often be giving away our innermost thoughts and feelings. The face of a lover might briefly flash the hint of passion to come. Or the smile of a colleague that's just a little too quick may not be such a friendly gesture.
The face may be used, and is used, for any and every human purpose - to dominate, to terrify, to harm, to please, to amuse... the face is no different in this respect from speech.
In this programme doctors and psychologists in Britain, the United States and Holland explain how we may read the meaning of facial expressions. Can we mask emotions? Does social background show in the face? How is the face used in courtship? And what is it in the face that can make it truly attractive?

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.
