A regular thump of the heart, a phantom wind whistling in the veins, the roar of air entering the lungs, and the rumbling of contracting muscles are sounds that make up a symphony of a healthy body. An irregularity in the rhythm or a change of pitch may indicate, to the trained medical ear, thatsomethingiswrong. Anthony Smith takes a journey in sound around the human body and shows how changes in sound patterns may be used to detect and locate serious diseases.

' Theatre is unique in its difficulties because the artist has to use the treacherous material of himself as his medium - theatre is always a self-destructive art and it is always written on the wind.'

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.
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.
