: The Body in Question

by JONATHAN MILLER Native Medicine
In the 1920s an English anthropologist, Edward Evans-Pritchard , made a study of the Azande tribe in the Southern Sudan. Their medical practices spring from a radically different view of illness from our own. Jonathan Miller journeys to the Sudan and, for the first time, reveals the magic oracles the Azande claim can point to the cause of disease.
This view is contrasted by the cures offered in a typical medical centre in the North West of England.
Both types of healing involve expert knowledge, and are carefully tailored for the society from which they originate.
Dr Miller does not cling to the mystique of his profession - he has the gift ... of looking like an eternal and untidy undergraduate, which disarms the layman's suspicion. (DAILY MAIL) Executive producer KARL SABBAGH Producer PATRICK UDEN

The last of six programmes
Inspired by the antics of a Dame in panto, he was introduced to a stage career with a dancing part in the chorus. After a number of successes in Musicals and Revues he found lasting fame on radio with Arthur Askey in "Band Waggon", Kenneth Horne in "Much Binding in the Marsh" and enjoyed a long partnership with Deryck Guyler in "The Men from the Ministry".
With funny songs and amusing anecdotes he recalls some of the more interesting aspects of show business life, in a long and distinguished career.

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.
