: Enquiry into the Unknown

Professor C. G. SELIGMAN :
' Ritual and Healing '
IN HIS TALK last week Professor Seligman showed how far the mind can influence the behaviour of the body. He explained how paralyses can be produced not only by suggestion but were also frequently the result of shell-shock during the War.
Professor Seligman will describe tonight such a case of shell-shock, and will give examples of strange rites performed by the Polynesian races of the Pacific, by natives of Ceylon and by Dervishes in Egypt. He will describe a case of self-induced anesthesia on the part of an Indian Sadhu
(Holv Man) and, most astonishing ot all, a Maori's death by suggestion.

There are also people in the train and in the streets, and hundreds and hundreds of children
The Play produced by LANCE SIEVEKING
ERICH KASTNER 'S STORY, ' Emil and the Detectives ', published three years ago, conforms with the best tradition of children's classics in affording equal delight to children and grown-ups. It tells the simple tale of how a very ordinary and human small boy had all his money stolen from him by a sneak in a bowler hat; and how within the short space of twenty-four hours he had enlisted the help of half the children in Berlin, and brought the thief to justice ; a tremendous romantic adventure, yet a perfectly credible one, set as it is amid the familiar commonplaces of modern every-day life—bowler hats, railway carriages, tram-cars, taxis, traffic lights, scooters, bicycles, and bank clerks. That, indeed, is the great charm of the story. As Mr. Walter de la Mare pointed out in his preface to the English edition, Emil's adventures might easily have been those of an English boy travelling to London, Liverpool, or Manchester.
Many listeners will already have seen the excellent film version, produced last year, and some may have seen the stage version, produced in English at Croydon last year. As a radio play it promises to be equally exciting; even Emil's nightmare in the train will lose nothing by its translation into terms of sound. And, as in the film, all the children's parts will be played by a cast of real boys and girls.
Th's play was broadcast in the Regional programme last night.
A series of photographs taken from the film version of ' Emil and the Detectives ' appears on page 299.

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.

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.
