: Where Are You Taking Us?

The first of four programmes presenting questions concerning science, scientists and the public.
1 : Towards the Superwoman
Does the fact that women have babies hold them back from high office in our society? Do their hormones make them less reliable than men? Is the menopause to blame for reducing their capabilities at what would otherwise be the prime of life? What are the answers to these questions now that we have safe childbirth and totally effective contraception, when menstrual tensions can be eliminated and the menopause itself exploited for long-term advantages not available to men?
Michael Smee talks to gynaecologists. endocrinologists. sociologists, experts on ageing and the theorists of women's liberation, in an attempt to assess the biological factors in the position of women in society. Producer MEG SHEFFIELD

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.
