: IT'S THE HARD SELL METHOD'

† P. J. Proby talks to the author of Battle for the Mind
A chance meeting between this unlikely pair-a physician in psychological medicine, and the wildest of the pop idols-revealed more common ground than one might suppose. For twenty years the doctor has been studying brain-washing and conversion techniques. In this conversation with P. J. Proby he shows how the technique a pop singer uses to work up an audience relates to his research.

: * THE DRUID AND THE WREN

by IDRIS PARRY
The carnival of Christmas is followed in theory-sometimes even in practice-by the calm of Boxing Day. The whole idea of carnival is occasional climax-you can' always be crowning your individuality with a paper hat. Afterwards should come relaxation into unity with a less hectic world: that of the folk tale, where stones and trees come to the help of a hero, and a common language is spoken by the druid and the wren.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
