: Horizon

The Last of the Polymaths This week's programme in the series on Man and Science today
J. B. S. Haldane was one of the most controversial and eccentric figures that British science has produced this century. His experiments on himself are legendary. To Haldane the idea of two cultures was unthinkable. He was both a classical scholar and a brilliant mathematician who applied his skill to genetics. Born into an upper-class family he was educated at Eton and Oxford, but his life was marked by a series of battles with established authority. He died a naturalised Indian and a Communist sympathiser.
Tonight's programme is a portrait of this remarkable but unusual scientist and begins with Haldane delivering his own filmed obituary. Narrator CHRISTOPHER CHATAWAY
Editor R. w. REID
Producer CHRISTOPHER la Fontaine


Unknown: J. B. S. Haldane

: Yesterday's Witness

David Lloyd George , Welshman
My Welsh nature is my best inheritance. I glory in it! I am a Welshman before everything
Lloyd George grew up as a poor boy in a tiny village in North Wales. He became one of the towering figures of modern European history.
He attracted more devotion and more hatred than any other politician of this century. When he died in 1945, Churchill called him 'the greatest Welshman since Owen Glendower. ' And it is as a Welshman that he is remembered in this programme.
To the rest of Britain the Prime Minister and war leader of over 50 years ago may only be a history-book character, but in Wales David Lloyd George is a living legend and there are men and women who can still bring alive the unique personality of the man who was known to friend and foe as the Welsh Wizard. Narrated by HENLEY THOMAS
(Lloyd George - Magic Prince of the Welsh: see pages 46-48)


Unknown: David Lloyd George
Unknown: Owen Glendower.
Produced By: Patricia Meehan

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.
