The Way and its Power
To the Chinese, Taoism has been the basis of practically all art, thought and worship - a way of life for more than 2,000 years arising from their perception of man's relationship to the Universe. Its contemporary relevance is manifested in such diverse activities as calligraphy, music, acupuncture and the martial arts. Illustrated also are time-honoured ceremonies of the Ghost Festival, a midnight 'Automatic writing' ritual and paintings, jades and ceramics from the museums of many countries.

The Fix: The hidden story behind drug abuse in Britain.
Nick Ross investigates drug addiction. There was a time when drug abuse was big news: back in the 60s LSD, purple hearts and heroin advanced like a tide in Britain. Ten years ago this month the government responded: addicts were made to register, while the police, the courts and Customs clamped down on illegal trafficking. The tide was turned. Or so it seemed. This film inquiry now reveals a new and even more alarming threat, one that affects the old as well as the young. The Fix shows how people in Britain are falling prey to highly addictive medicines.

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.
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.
