: THE BRAIN

A series of six programmes on our present knowledge of the brain and its activities
2: Perception by PROFESSOR RICHARD GREGORY University of Edinburgh
We do not see the outside world as a camera sees it. As a result of previous experience, our brain adds to the incoming sensory data, so our perception of the external world is far richer than the sense data indicate. What seems to happen is the brain continually forms a model which it compares with the external world. As the external world changes, the sensory data flow in to modify the enriched ' brain model.'
Broadcast on January 12

: THE POETRY OF H.D.

Selected and introduced by Ian Fletcher and read by SISTER MARY CORCORAN and MARILYN MEYERS
The American poet Hilda Doollttle , who signed her work ' H.D.', was born in 1886 and died in 1961. Mr. Fletcher sees her as a lifelong Imagist, whose work gained added strength as she grew older. Of her war trilogy he says ' These poems challenge comparison with Eliot's Four Quartets, and are certainly not dwarfed by the comparison.' followed by an interlude at 7.25

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.
