[number removed]
Many people would regard sight as the most precious of all the senses but often have little idea of how the eye works. Eyes are complicated pieces of machinery which pick up light patterns; these are then changed into information for our brains. So ii's important to know the rudiments of basic eye care and to be aware of the things that can go wrong with our eyes.
I think I need glasses - but do I? Do opticians push you into wearing glasses? Can television damage the eyes? And how will I cope with failing eyesight?
Put your questions on eyes to a leading eye surgeon and Mr Cyril Howell , an optician.
In the Chair Sue MacGregor Produced by the Woman's Hour Unit

Read by Michael McClain
The paper said that he had won his case against the local authority making sewerage charges when there wasn't any sewerage, but nonetheless, they had found a way of extracting some of the money they'd been after.
' " It's really very funny when you think about it," said Derek. " Surely it isn't real!"

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.
