: Controversy Special

Soviet Scientists-a Case for Concern?
Soviet scientists are restricted in their freedom to travel and study abroad, to attend scientific conferences and to communicate with foreign colleagues.
Soviet scientists seeking to uphold these and other basic political rights - guaranteed by Soviet law -have been intimidated, dismissed from their posts, and officially ostracised by the scientific community. Some have been detained in mental hospitals, or exiled.
The campaign of repression against advocates of human and political rights has recently been intensified. It has threatened even Andrei Sakharov , one of the Soviet Union's greatest physicists, so much so that the American National Academy of Sciences has warned that future scientific cooperation with the Soviet Union will be jeopardised unless Sakharov is left free and unmolested. In Britain concern has recently focused on the misuse of psychiatry to declare insane hundreds of Soviet dissidents.
In tonight's special programme from the Royal Institution, London, scientists and doctors will discuss the situation of their Soviet colleagues and consider what action they should take. Among those taking part are: Prof Sir Derek Barton
Prof Sir Alexander Haddow Prof F. A. Jenner
Dr Harold Merskey Prof Brian Spalding
Prof Sir Harold Thompson Prof John Ziman
Chairman Prof Sir George Porter

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
