Part 1
'It's an emergency, George. You remember the old General, used to live in Paris? We need someone from his past. We need you, George.' Madame Ostrakova was desperate to believe the sweating Russian who promised the return of her daughter. Then there was the letter from Paris which rang old bells for General Vladimir.
These were the two events which heralded the summons of George Smiley from retirement.

: Hypnosis

Can Your Mind Control Pain?
Janet Salisz made medical history when three of her children were delivered by Caesarean operation using only hypnosis to control pain. Because she was allergic to pain-killing drugs, her doctor had advised her to learn hypnosis. ' Each time I did it, it became easier,' she says. Her surgeons, to convince sceptical medical colleagues, made a remarkable film of her second Caesarean, during which she can be seen to be free of pain and perfectly relaxed.
This film, the second of four on hypnosis, concentrates on its use to control pain. It looks at Janet's experience as well as two chronic pain patients, a London taxi-driver and a Los Angeles police officer.
It reports the work of scientists trying to understand the subtle psychological processes involved in hypnotic pain control and asks, does hypnosis work for just a few rare individuals or is it a technique that can be generally useful?

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.
