Sir J. ARTHUR THOMSON , LL.D. : '
William Harvey (1587-1657)-Tho Import of hia Discovory of the Circulation of the Blood'
SIR J. ARTHUR THOMSON sets out in this series to give simple biographies of six famous scientific investigators, with the aim of setting their achievements in proper perspective. William Harvey , his first subject, published his work on the circulation of the blood in 1628; his conceptions of the blood as a continuous stream returning to its source and of the heart as the motor power of the movement of the blood wore entirely original. Harvey made modern accurate anatomy possible, and his scientific comparative method of investigation was as important as his actual discoveries.

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.
