Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Huntingdon's are probably the best known of the incurable diseases that result from degeneration of the brain.
Although much is known about what changes in the brains of victims, almost nothing is understood about why the conditions occur. But recently useful clues have come from studies of groups of people in which the diseases are very common.
Georgina Ferry examines the geographical evidence, and discusses how it may help the victims of these distressing diseases.

Alexander Walker recalls the screen careers of the cinema's brightest stars. James Cagney
In his 50-year career,
Hollywood's greatest tough guy played the bad man, the hero and the song-and-dance man. He gave every role all he'd got, but was sparing with words when asked about his art: 'You walk in, plant yourself, look the other fella in the eye and tell the truth. That's all you need to know about acting. Class dismissed.'

Compiled by jo ANDERSON from the letters and diaries of DAME LAURA KNIGHT. RA, Britain's Official War Artist at the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg
With Jill Balcon
From 7 January to 1 April 1946, the 68-year-old Nottingham-born painter worked feverishly in a tiny glass press box overlooking the main courtroom where Goering,
Hess, Ribbentrop and 17 other former Nazi leaders were being tried as war criminals. In The Dock at Nuremberg, Laura Knight wanted to retain an artist's detachment from the tales of horror unreeling a few feet below her. She believed that the idea she had for setting down the event for posterity 'would hold good'.

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.
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.
