Or How to Examine Your Inside from the Outside
The Royal Institution Annual Christmas Lectures to Young People by Heinz Wolff of the Medical Research Council 2: Pumps, Pipes and Flows
At one time the heart was thought to be the very seat of life and love; we now know that the heart is simply a pump, or to be more precise a double pump, keeping the vital blood in circulation. How this circulation is regulated is the subject of tonight's lecture and we shall measure how much blood the heart is actually pumping without spilling a single drop.

: Horizon

The Trobriand Experiment
In pubic leaf, warpaint and feathers, serried ranks of Trobriand islanders advance across a field with arms outstretched. They are about to play their extraordinary version of the Old English game of cricket-one where the players start by enacting the arrival of a visiting team by air. Sixty years ago, anthropologist
Bronislaw Malinowski predicted that the vigorous and distinctive culture of these ' savages' would die out quickly under Western influences. Instead, they borrowed and adapted our ideas. Then came famine, and this modified Garden of Eden faced its toughest test-the very survival of a society based on the giving and taking of food.
Horizon's camera observes the solution attempted by a young Trobriander who returns to his island with the greatest magic ever known to his people-a university education. If JOHN KASAIP -WALOVA succeeds, could his way offer a model for other peoples? 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.
