: SLEEP

A report on current research by DR. IAN OSWALD
Department of Psychiatry, Umversity of Edinburgh
We sleep for nearly a third of our Ives. Why? Scientists, despite much research, still cannot tell us. But they do know a great deal about what is going on during sleep: about sleep in pregnant women, about psychophysiological rhythms and dreams in men: about the effect of environment on duration and the endlessly debated assertion ' I need my eight hours.' A research report illustrated by: DR. IRWIN FEINBERG, New York
DR. CHARLES FISHER, New York DR. DAVID FOULKES, Laramie, Wyoming
DR. STUART LEWIS. Edinburgh
PROFESSOR J. N. MILLS, Manchester DR. o. PETRE-QUADENS. Antwerp DR. BETTY SCHWARTZ , Paris DR. G. S. TUNE, Liverpool Programme arranged by Archie Clow

: A HEDGE, BACKWARDS

A discovery for radio by Henry Reed with Hugh Burden and Carleton Hobbs
This programme in the Shewin-Tablet saga introduces General Gland and is mainly concerned with the posthumous production of Richard Shewin 's only play. In the course of production the Certain Subject with which it did unquestionably deal became a rather uncertain one: the sex of one of the characters was changed. Billy became Jenny, and on the first nisht the only trace that remained of the Certain Subject was in one line: 'The law may be against us, Jenny, but ordinary people aren't.'
Characters from the play:
The fragments of Hilda Tablet 's musique concrete renforcée and the settings of ' There once was a garden' realised by DONALD SWANN
Produced by DOUGLAS CLEVERDON

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.
