Moral issues are now making their own headlines. Behind the daily and often sensational news events lies a clash of views as to how people should respond as individuals and as a society. Joan Bakewell examines just such an issue: its social and political context and the dilemma it presents for those at the Heart of the Matter.

Yerkes Observatory, at
Williams Bay near Chicago, is a most unusual place.
Its main telescope is not a reflector, but a refractor - the world's largest.
Old-fashioned though it may look, Yerkes is in the forefront of scientific research, as Patrick Moore explains when he goes there to talk to the director,
Dr Al Harper , and members of the observatory's staff. Photography RICHARD ADAM Sound MARTYN CLIFT

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.
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.
