: The Case of the Midwife Toad

based on the book by ARTHUR KOESTLER
Paul Kammerer was the most brilliant and unorthodox biologist of his time. He was also the subject of the greatest scientific scandal of this century. In 1909 the results of Kammerer's experiments with salamanders and midwife toads rocked the scientific establishment.
Immediate scientific opposition began as an academic whispering campaign, grew into bitter controversy, and ended with the accusation of fraud-the worst sin known to scientists. Kammerer committed suicide.
Was he a fraud? If he wasn't, and his ideas are proved to be right, can we, as newspapers suggested, breed a Race of Supermen?
The programme reconstructs Kammerer's career. Scientists discuss the implications for modern man, and Arthur Koest ler, who tells the story, offers up some suggestions of his own.
Commentary spoken by JOHN GREGSON
Original songs by PAUL KAMMERER Written and produced by BRUCE NORMAN

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.
