: Horizon: Kuru - To Tremble with Fear

This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today.
Kuru is a disease which affects only one small tribe in the remote highlands of New Guinea. It starts with a slight trembling of the hands and finally leaves the victim a helpless shaking jelly unable to control any movement - unable to live. Not surprisingly ' Kuru ' means ' to tremble with fear.'
What makes it not only more bizarre but also more fascinating to a scientist like Professor E. J. Field of Newcastle, who went to New Guinea to study it, is its link with cannibalism. It's been suggested that to contract Kuru you have to eat someone who has died of the disease. For Professor Field it is this seemingly irrelevant information that makes Kuru more than an isolated curiosity. It helps link it with multiple sclerosis, with the mental disorder schizophrenia, even with the process of ageing, in a new group of diseases all thought to be caused by slow acting viruses.
Tonight's programme plots the development of an intriguing new theory which could be opening up a new field of medicine. Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN

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.
