: Genes, Mind and Culture

' Biology and culture are absolutely inseparable. Any change in one ultimately alters the other.'
To what extent do genres determine behaviour?
In his book. Genes. Mind and Culture, Professor
Edward Wilson of Harvard University has presented a theory in which genetic heritage and cultural behaviour are inextricably linked. The thesis remains controversial. It leaves no room for a god in the shaping of morality, and it could imply that simple aspects of behaviour, such as a preference for tea or coffee, are genetically programmed.
PROFESSOR WILSON argues his case with John Bowker , Professor of Religious Studies at
Lancaster University,
Dr John Turner of the Genetics Department at Leeds University, and Anthony Qulnton , Master of Trinity College, Oxford. In the Chair John Maddox
Producer JULIAN BROWN

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.
