A weekly programme about work in the world of science
Seasickness and Research by F. H. Todd, Ph.D., M.I.N.A.
Superintendent of the Ship Division,
National Physical Laboratory
Seasickness may be no more than the unpleasant accompaniment to a voyage made for business or leisure, but during the war it was a vitally important factor for amphibious operations. There are two obvious lines of attack on the problem: one to devise drugs to offset the motion of the sea, the other to make the ship more resistant to the effects of the elements.

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.
