Six talks by Ian Kennedy , Reader in Law and Executive Director of the Centre of Law, Medicine and Ethics at King's College, London. 1: The Rhetoric of Medicine
Illness, disease and health are the key words of modern medicine. Their meanings have relevance for all of us. yet it is the medical profession which has acquired the power to decide what these words mean and how they should be acted upon. UN KENNEDY argues that the consequence is that doctors have gained the right to show us how to behave, but medicine has lost its way.
' We must abandon, this state of dependence, we must become masters of medicine, not its servants.' (Repeated: Sun, R3)

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.
