COMFORT ON AGEING
It is one of the most unpleasant discoveries that we all grow old and that there are heavy odds on our dying between the ages of sixty-five and eighty.
Dr. Alex Comfort one of the most distinguished research workers dealing with the biology of ageing, looks into the age-old quest to prolong human life and investigates the latest scientific theories.
What is the process taking place in our body that makes us age? Is ageing a kind of clock-mechanism that could be slowed down and how? Is ageing due to a loss of biological 'information' from the cells due to some kind of random damage? Does the cell, like a worn computer, run out of evolutionary programme? The scene of the drama may only be the tiny, invisible cell-nucleus-but we are the real protagonists; the outcome of the story concerns the lives of all of us.
Do many of us dislike the idea of growing old? Can the social scientist do something to change this attitude which leads to our frightening negligence towards old people? Can the biologist-and the British biologist in particular —do something to make our lives longer?

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.
