: States of Mind

The fourth of 15 programmes Presented by Jonathan Miller
Until recently psychologists shunned questions about the philosophy of ' mind' in the belief that they were tedious and unanswerable. Professor Daniel Dennett , from Tufts University in Boston, describes how the study of computers and artificial intelligence has helped philosophy and psychology to enjoy a more fruitful relationship.

: The Money Programme

Presented by Brian Widlake and Valerie Singleton
With LUKE CASEY, NICK CLARKE and MARK ROGERSON. Featuring: Budget 83
Sir Geoffrey Howe 's fifth budget on Tuesday has special importance. This could well be election year. The consensus is that the Chancellor could have plenty to give away in tax cuts, although volatile oil prices and the state of the pound must mean daily arithmetic for him. But his measures will also be gauged in the light of where Britain has got to since the Tories came to power in 1979. From inside the Treasury, The Money Programme team investigates the present state of our economy and forecasts what this budget will bring to us all.

: International Pro-Celebrity Golf

from the beautiful Ailsa Course at Turnberry Hotel, Ayrshire, scene of the 1977 Open Championship.
Golfing superstars Lee Trevino and Severiano Ballesteros , who between them have won every major championship, lead teams of celebrity partners as they challenge for the Marley Trophy.
In 1948 the star of the hit musical Oklahoma!, Howard Keel , took London's West End by storm. Nowadays he's better known for his role in Dallas, and proves a useful partner for Lee Trevino. In contrast, Cliff Thorburn made his name as recently as 1980, when he became World Snooker Champion. Also an excellent low handicap golfer, he returns to the programme to partner Seve Balles teros in a very close and entertaining match.
PETER ALLISS commentates and talks with the players in this match over nine selected holes.

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.
