Man and science today
THE LAST OF THE POLYMATHS
J. B. S. Haldane was one of the most controversial figures that British science has produced during this century. He was born in an upper-class Scottish family and educated at Eton and Oxford; he died in India, a naturalised Indian and a communist sympathiser. He was a brilliant mathematician who applied his skill to genetics; but he was also a classical scholar who put his original mind to a huge range of subjects. For him the idea of two cultures was unthinkable.
Haldane's behaviour is legendary, and not only in scientific circles. He was involved in daring exploits in the first world war, performed dangerous scientific experiments on himself (his family motto was ' Suffer '), and throughout his life maintained a running battle with established authority.
Tonight's programme is a portrait of this remarkable but unusual scientist seen through the eyes of his friends and critics.

: WILLIAM BLAKE

1757-1827
Dr. Jacob Bronowski presents a dramatised essay on the man and his work
AS A MAN IS-SO HE SEES
For thirty-five years of his life Blake lived under the iron heel of war and three revolutions-in France, in America, and in the growing industry of Britain. He was a rebel against political and religious dogma, a mystic who dined with Isaiah, a poet of the stature of Milton. As an artist, he considered himself in the company of Michelangelo and Raphael -a presumption, maybe, but all his life he struggled to convey extraordinary visions: he saw the plight of twentieth-century man crushed by the Machine of State. Yet he lived with the hope. that man's imagination would enable him- to rise free. He believed Jerusalem could be built among the satanic mills.
Like most men ahead of their time he was deemed mad. Only today can we see him as a prophet whose work is as relevant to our time as that of any modem thinker.
Music by DUDLEY SIMPSON
Commentary by DR. JACOB BRONOWSKI
Dramatised and produced by ADRIAN MALONE
A co-production with N.E.T., U.S.A.-

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.
