: Scientifically Speaking

Introduced by John Maddox
What is pain, and what biological function does it serve? A little over four years ago biochemists in Scotland and in the United States discovered in the brain tissue of mammals a group of substances, the enkephalins and the endorphins, that is intricately involved in the perception and control of pain. The same group of chemicals is found in evolutionarily primitive animals, such as the hag fish; did the acquisition of the endorphins signal a dramatic change in the course of evolution?
Patrick Wall , Professor of Anatomy at University College, London, has spent his life in the study of pain and assesses our new understanding of it. Producer GEOFF DEEHAN

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
