Moving and Seeing by R. W. Ditchburn Professor of Physics in the University of Reading
Professor Ditchburn became interested in problems of vision during the war. Since then he has continued his researches, and in this talk he describes some of the ingenious apparatus used in his laboratory to study vision. He also discusses some of his experiments which suggest that to see it is essential for the eye to keep moving continuously.

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.
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.
