: Take It or Leave It

March 24th - Began with a discussion with my mother. Subject Being Handicapped by my sex and youth. To escape held up relations between Jesus and Papa against those between Mary and her son. Said religion was a lying-in hospital. Mother indulgent ... Then she said I would come back to faith because I had a restless mind. This means to leave church by back door of sin and re-enter through the skylight of repentance.

: The Mind of Man

A worldwide investigation into current research on the Brain and human nature
Introduced by Magnus Magnusson Narrated by Marius Goring
The human brain is the most subtle of all the works of nature, an end product of thousands of millions of years of evolution. But can it yet understand itself? Can human mental powers be explained in terms of the machinery inside our heads? This programme shows that in many laboratories an attempt has now begun.
In New Delhi a Yogi shows that his mind can control his body in impossible ways. In New York a healthy volunteer reduces his blood pressure just by wishing to do so. In Moscow one of the world's leading specialists shows the predictable mental effects in patients with damage to specific areas of their brain. From Lyons and Edinburgh the latest opinions on sleeping and dreaming.
In Munich we watch an experiment with a radio-controlled monkey, and in Santa Barbara, California, we meet 'Sara,' a seven-year-old chimpanzee who boasts a vocabulary of 150 word-symbols.
Also in California we meet a housewife whose brain has been surgically split down the middle. Although she leads a fairly normal life at home, laboratory tests show that she possesses two independent minds under the one skull - evidence that consciousness is tied to the living tissues of the brain.

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.
