: A Taste of Britain

4: Making the Most of It-Yorkshire
Yorkshire has always been noted for the quality of its food; although in the old industrial West Riding the tradition - of necessity -has been to make the most of very little. Today, in more prosperous times, the tastes born of hardship still persist: a liking for tripe, elder, and black puddings; for home-baked bread and Yorkshire pudding.

: Horizon: You Do As You Are Told

When six million Jews met their deaths at the hands of the Nazis, thousands of ordinary people lent a hand. How could this happen?
Callous and inhuman acts did not cease with the Nazis. From Vietnam to the present day there have been reports of atrocities committed by people with wives and children - people who would otherwise seem perfectly normal. Were they in reality sadists gratifying their desires? Or is our society full of people whose background and upbringing make it impossible for them to disobey an evil command, even when they know it is wrong?
Some years ago Professor Stanley Milgram devised an ingenious experiment aimed at finding out whether people chosen at random could be persuaded to inflict torture. He used neither threats nor the promise of reward. He wanted to find out whether you, the man in the street, would be willing to give another human being electric shocks of 450 volts.

Producer: Christopher La Fontaine

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.
