: States of Mind

The 14th of 15 programmes
Presented by Jonathan Miller
Although psychoanalysis is usually associated with the work of Sigmund Freud, a number of psychologists have found themselves in disagreement with certain aspects of Freudian theory, and have developed their own variant forms of analytic treatment. In this country the work of Melanle Klein who became convinced of the importance of experiences in the first year of life. has been particularly influential.
Dr Hanna Segal , an analyst who worked closely with Mrs Klein , explains the basis of Klein'ian analysis.

: Thank God it's Sunday

Sir John Betjeman 's imagination let loose on the subject of Sunday in London. Among the scenes he surveys are the parks, demos, the Natural History Museum, Church and, of course, the weather. Across the soaking acres of the grass,
Over wet pavements and by dripping boughs
We pilgrims plod to the last shrine of all,
The best attended and the most revered,
The sacred altar of the Sunday press.
What's in? What's out? What's on? We ought to know
For if we don't we won't be thought informed.
Willingly we make offerings at the shrine.

: Newseries Everest - The First Attempts

1922 and 1933 The first of four programmes celebrating the 30th anniversary of the conquest of Mount Everest.
Introduced by the pioneer Antarctic explorer, Duncan Carse
' Mount Everest is great and beautiful. Marvellously built; majestic, terrible.' So wrote one of the first climbers to stand beneath the peak of the highest mountain in the world. These early pioneers were to get within 1,700 feet of the summit and return with a classic film of early mountaineering, but Everest remained inviolate for another 11 years, and success when it came, was limited to the air.
Wings Over Everest (1933) tells the amazing story of that perilous pioneering flight just 50 years ago.
As the aircraft approached Everest, ' the crest came up to meet us ... I wondered whether the tail skid would strike the summit ... but we cleared it by just a hairs breadth ...' Then, for the first time man looked down on the roof of the world.

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.
