: Common Sense

with Professor Colin Blakemore
Professor of Physiology at the University of Oxford and Fellow of Magdalen College, in the Royal Institution's 153rd Annual Christmas Lectures for young people.
A series of six journeys to the edges of your own perceptual world and into the sensory worlds of other animals. 1: Making Sense
Although plants have primitive sensitivity to physical events around them, they have no brain to interpret them and to decide intelligently what to do. Even simple animals make decisions but it is a giant leap from primitive sensitivity to the perception that we enjoy.

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
