: * THE BRAIN

A series of six programmes on our present knowledge of the brain and its activities
4: Biological Drives by DR. RICHARD ANDREW
Universify of Sussex
Biological drives are hypothetical mechanisms that have been postulated to explain why the higher animals behave so as to correct physiological imbalances. For example, part of the brain-the hypothalmus—contains units which monitor the body's water content and then translate say a deficit of water into a feeling of thirst. But the way that such deficits and the action of sex hormones influence the likelihood of bringing about a particular response is still far from being understood.

: PORTRAIT OF BRIAN HOWARD

1 Mad, bad and dangerous to know' (like Byron) was Evelyn Waugh 's description of this strange child of the Twenties. Very noticeable at Eton and Oxford, he was brilliant, handsome, a fox-hunting aesthete, and a withering wit. His
.early promise and literary pretensions were never fulfilled. He died ten years ago leaving his contemporaries with vivid memories of an extraordinary person.
Written and narrated by MAURICE RICHARDSON

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.
