British Science -
On the Wrong Track?
Why, when Britain wins more Nobel prizes than almost anyone else, aren't our scientists providing industry with the flow of ideas needed to keep our factories in business and people in work?

: States of Mind

The third of 15 programmes. Presented by Jonathan Miller
Until the present century vision was often regarded as a simple process - the eyes provide the brain with pictures of the outside world, and the brain just looks at them. We now know that visual perception is one of the most complicated functions that the human brain performs. Professor Richard Gregory , from the University of Bristol, shows how the study of illusions has demonstrated how much of what we see ' out there' is actually generated from within.

: The World About Us

Animal Impostors
A viceroy that looks like a monarch; a worm that isn't; a beetle that flashes in code: what have they in common? They are all imposters.
Some impostors use disguise as a cloak of invisibility. Others imitate the motft colourful of animals. The variety of deceptions is vast: insects that look like plants and plants that look like insects; animals that deceive to get a meal and those that deceive to avoid becoming one. The story of animal impostors is one of the most remarkable in nature. Narrator Barry Patne

The new Grand Prix season bursts into life next weekend in Rio de Janeiro and inevitably in this highly-charged sport, where teams talk in millions of dollars, there are already controversial talking points.

: Film of the Week: The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds

starring Joanne Woodward Nell Potts , Roberta Wallach
Actor Paul Newman proved himself one of Hollywood's finest directors with this, his second film - a sensitive version of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play. His real-life wife, Joanne Woodward , plays the slatternly Beatrice Hunsdorffer , a woman deserted by her husband and desperately attempting to bring up her daughters with little money and diminishing hope. Their daughter, Nell, plays the gentle Matilda, whose experiments with marigolds win her a school prize in the film's powerful climactic scene.
Screenplay by ALVIN SARGENT
Based on the play by PAUL ZINDEL
Produced and directed by PAUL NEWMAN (First showing on British television) Films: page 7

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.
