Three years ago Etlward O. Wilson , the author of Sociobiology: The New Synthesis, suggested that the biological principles which appear to work well for animals could be extended profitably to the human social sciences.

: The Spring of Memory

A feature by Bill Morrisoa and John Theoeharis
Under the guidance of a hypnotist (Leonard Wilder. Dental Surgeon) and with a tape recorder placed next to the couch, a subject (Bill Morrison ) registers the regressive movement of an adult's life to the earliest childhood memories, goes through the trauma of birth and describes some sensations inside the womb. Is what emerges a true memory of being born and of growing up or is it merely memories of childhood fantasies?
Producer JOHN THEOCHARIS

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.
