: THE BRAIN

A series of six programmes on our present knowledge
3: Mathematics or Experiments by PROFESSOR CHRISTOPHER ZEEMAN Warwick University, and DR. GILES BRINDLEY
Cambridge University
Christopher Zeeman is a topologist —a mathematician with a special interest in the geometry of many-dimensional spaces. Over the last few years he has been using topology in a theoretical study of the brain's activities. Dr. Brindley on the other hand is a neurophysiologist, and his study of the brain is largely experimental. These two different approaches to the problem of understanding how the brain works are the basis of tonight's discussions.

: THE FANTASY OF POWER

The second of two talks by Paul Mayersberg on the role of genre in the cinema
Mr. Mayersberg argues that the director's, and the screen-writer's. exploitation of the ' fantasy of power '-the audience's need for a sense of dominahon-can be a spur to creative achievement. Ha believes that this need found its satisfaction in the early sixties in a new American film genre, the political movie.

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.
