Late Night Line-Up looks back
We can measure a man's height and age - but what about his mind? According to Professor Hans Eysenck not only IQ but our human personality itself can be measured with considerable accuracy. He says it's very largely predetermined by genetics and that we can't do much to change it. The theory has already caused a big row in psychology, for if what happens to us during our lives has little real effect on our personalities, then many accepted ideas about, for example, the way we teach our children and the way we treat criminals may need changing. From education and entertainment to penal reform and attitudes towards pornography and sex, Eysenck's theory could affect all of us.
In this film Horizon looks at the life and work of one of the most controversial figures in psychology today.
A documentary investigation on the Katyn Forest Massacre.
In 1943 the Germans, then occupying the Smolensk region in the Soviet Union, unearthed a mass grave in which the bodies of more than 4,000 Polish army officers were found. They instigated an investigation: it blamed the Russians for the murder. Half a year later the Russians reoccupied the area, dug up the corpses and conducted their own investigation which put the blame on the Germans.
In 30 years the gruesome story of the Katyn Forest Massacre has become perhaps the most baffling unsolved crime of the last war. Files and men disappeared; a key witness was found hanged. There were no eye-witnesses to the executions; no survivors. No international tribunal has ever been held.
Even today, Katyn is still an 'issue to be avoided', because of the far-reaching political and moral implications of the case.
Now a self-appointed tribunal - in which the viewpoints of the nations involved in the case are represented by actors - conducts its own investigation. It discusses and illustrates the most important evidences from all sides and in relation to each other.
What happened at Katyn? Who committed the crime? And why?
Taking part Michael Bryant, Lindsay Campbell, Dennis Edwards, Richard Marner, Stanley Meadows, Morris Perry, George Pravda, Edwin Richfield, Norman Wooland
