The Mind Box
Anxiety, lack of confidence, isolation, depression ... these alarming feelings are often presented in doctors' waiting rooms and treated with drugs. But why are some people made ill by the stress and strains of life while others seem to sail through?
Dr Dorothy Rowe , clinical psychologist and author, argues that the answer lies in the 'mind box'-the framework of unexamined beliefs about life and death which each person acquires in childhood. Psychology has traditionally dismissed such beliefs. Dr Rowe, however, sides with an older tradition which sees depression as a symptom of an underlying spiritual crisis. 'Ancient writers on the subject said it was a lack of wisdom in living, and I think that's true.
Learning to be a bit wiser about yourself-that's the cure for depression.'
This film examines how she passes on the ancient wisdom of self-knowledge - and what the people who come to her learn in the process.

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.
