: Spaceships of the Mind

A voyage of the imagination into the future on and outside our planet by Nigel Calder.
The last of three programmes Seeding the Universe
Professor Harlan Smith of the University of Texas sees the outer planets of the Solar System and far-distant planets of other stars becoming the New World of the future. And the new explorers will not be so very different from the Pilgrim Fathers, according to Professor Freeman Dyson of the Institute of Advanced Study.
The ships in which our descendants ride to the stars may themselves descend from the fusion-powered starship Daedalus planned by British engineer Alan Bond. Fantasies? Or stepping-stones to the next stage in the destiny of man? It may be harder for the human race to survive on Earth than to risk exploring the vastness of Space, still unknown and uninhabited - as far as we know....

In a Mess
The unique ' situations' project by the Dutch Worktheatre which won the 1977 RAI television prize. This series of highly-entertaining, interlocking playlets is based on the situations people encounter when they come into contact with psychiatry and was originally created by the WORKTHEATRE, a cooperative theatre group, in conjunction with patients in psychiatric institutions.
The programme focuses on the alienation and confusion created by constantly changing role-playing - amusingly depicted by a group of actors who have been happily swapping roles for years. Running through the alienation is the thread of the child-parent, superior-subordinate, doctor-patient relationships which is gradually unravelled into a lucid recovery.
The Worktheatre group offer no ready-made solutions but their questions are seriously posed with insight and humour.

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.
