: THE BRAIN

A series of six programmes on our present knowledge of the brain and its activities
4: Biological Drives by DR RICHARD ANDREW University 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.

: POVERTY AMIDST WEALTH

Trends in the world's economy
† by John H. Adler
Senior Adviser to the Economics Department of the World Bank
In a study of world economic growth since 1950, Mr. Adler and some of his colleagues at the World Bank have reached some unusual-and unorthodox-conclusions. Mr. Adler, who is speaking in his private capacity, argues on the basis of these findings that it is in the direct interest of the wealthier nations to invest capital in those that are less developed.

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.
