: The Human Animal

Three days after its birth a baby's crying will wake up its mother although she will sleep through the cries of another infant. And a baby's smile, and even the very shape of its face and head, are so appealingto adults that it usually guarantees a protective and caring response.
In The Immortal Genes,
Desmond Morris continues his personal view of the human species by examining the natural history of the human parentand child and looking at the reasons why we devote more time than any other species to raising our offspring.
He travels to St Petersburg to witness the Russian way of birth - babies are whisked away from their mothers within moments, and fathers are not allowed to be present at the birth nor to see their offspring until they are a week old when they are handed over in a ceremonial "discharge room". He also examines other parent/child rituals and ceremonies reflecting that there is little difference between a Dallas debutante ball and an Ashant coming-of-age ceremony.
His explanation is that our children give us genetic immortality and to ensure that our genes continue without mishap in their new
"containers", it is vital for us to become loving, caring parents.
But why do we not die off once that job is done? On average humans now live for 20 years after their breeding capabilities are over. Morris travels to the Mexican Festival of the Dead and to the depths of an Etruscan tomb to find out the answer.

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.
