Seagulls on the Cable
' All the charisma of a used Kleenex says the British music press. but Liverpool band A Flock of Seagulls don't mind too much: they've still sold over a million copies of their first album and they're doing rather well in the USA. Steve Blacknell went to New York with them and took the chance to find out about cable television. Riverside presents a complete guide to New York's 27 channels, and takes a closer look at one of them, Music Television (MTV), the world's first 24-hour pop television channel.

Why are there so few famous women scientists? Are there any inborn differences in ability or aptitude between men and women?
For over a century, starting with the phrenologists, male scientists have been searching for evidence to demonstrate female inferiority.
Dr Jan Harding, of the Centre for Science Education, studies the way girls and boys are steered into adopting different roles in life. In this "Horizon" she imagines a boy and a girl from a modern comprehensive transported into the past as victims of the scientists' experiments.
For the girl, the experiments become a recurring nightmare: no sooner is one kind of test found to be spurious than another even more bizarre ordeal is invented for her, and as each decade passes, she is surrounded by new voices of male prejudice. But perhaps the tables are about to be turned?

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.
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.
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.
