The Intelligence Man a story of scientific fraud by STEPHEN DAVIS starring John Shrapnel
Sir Cyril Burt died in 1971, the most eminent psychologist of his age, his name forever linked with the IQ test and the 11+ examination system. Within two years a bitter scientific controversy saw Burt accused of lifelong faking and manipulation of phoney scientific data. How and why was Burt allowed to get away with this? The Intelligence Man tells the story of Burt's life and career, from the days of his childhood in the 1890s down to the last years of controversy.

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.
