In the last of a three-part series, William Woollard asks where our species goes from here. According to some, nowhere; technological animals cannot evolve. But as we face the dawn of machine intelligence and the possibility of reproducing robot rocket ships, how much of the running of the world will be left to men?

La Belle Irlandaise
In September 1827 an English theatre company visited Paris to perform a season of Shakespeare. In the audience at the first night of Hamlet was the composer Hector Berlioz.
There he saw Harriet Smithson , who was playing Ophelia. Some years later he was to create the Symphonie Fantastique in her honour. Helen Madden tells the story of Harriet Smithson Berlioz, the Irish actress who was so much admired in Paris that she was known there as 'La belle Irlandaise'.

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.
