Paul Wilcox/Herr Liesecke:
A series of four documentaries in which a contemporary moral or religious topic is investigated 3: Moonshine and Stardust
The more scientists study the origins of the universe, the more many of them find they're faced with a symmetry and order which is unlikely to have come about by random chance. The language that physicists and astronomers need to describe their latest theories is now converging with the spiritual language of mystics and religious teachers.
Ted Harrison looks at this phenomenon and hears from leading scientists, including
Dr James Lovelock and Sir Fred Hoyle ; and such theologians as the Bishop of Birmingham,
The Rt Rev Hugh Montefiore. Producer FRANCES GUMLEY (R)

A portrait of Sir Thomas Beecham
The last of six programmes about British conductors compiled and written by BRYAN CRIMP
Narrator John Rowe
Most musicians who played under Sir Thomas Beecham agree that he was some kind of magician. Talking about him they wonder how, despite his erratic use of the baton, he was able to conjure from them some of the greatest performances of their lives.
In this programme you can also hear Beecham on Beecham, as well as music by Handel, Delius, Berlioz, Sibelius and Mozart.

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.
