: The Burt Scandal

Sir Cyril Burt was one of the pioneers of British psychology, at both the theoretical and practical level. More than anyone else, he was responsible for the introduction of IQ tests in the 11-plus exam. When these came under critical fire in the 1950s. Burt forged statistical data to prove that 'intelligence' was hereditary and therefore assessable in young children Burt's work was very widely quoted, but it took until the 1970s before his fraud was exposed, and then by people outside the IQ fraternity; a behavioural psychologist and a journalist.
Richard Morris of St Andrews University talks to some of Burt's pupils, including Hans Eysenck to try to understand his personality, his motives and most important of all why it took so long to unmask him.

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.
