A programme about seven pecple who believe they are jinxed. With comments from Morris Nltsun , psychologist and Mike Haslam , statistician. ' Psychologically, the jinx can be seen as a way of giving meaning to a series of events which otherwise seem utterly incomprehensible.'
If we think of events as being unrelated. there is no reason to think that anyone should carry on being jinxed. It's like tossing our famous statistician's friend, the coin. The coin has no memory of whether It came down heads or tails on the previous occasion.'

Narrator JOHN ROWE The Burlends were a middle-aged couple who decided in 1831 to emigrate to America with their five youngest children. On a chilly
November night they were rowed ashore from a river steamer to a dark and deserted landing stage at Phillip's Ferry on the Illinois River.
Eventually they prospered and in 1848 Rebecca dictated the story of their adventures.

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.
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.
