In March 1988 Professor Edward Hitchcock performed the first British foetal brain implant. This operation takes brain cells from a foetus and implants them into the brain of someone suffering from Parkinson's Disease. Although still at the experimental stage this operation offers new hope for the 120,000 Parkinson's sufferers in Britain. Fred Roberts and Cyril Hayes are Professor Hitchcock's newest patients. Barbara Myers follows them through the weeks leading up to the operation and after, to discover if this really is the miracle Fred and Cyril are hoping for.

Some are newly-created posts within Mrs Thatcher 's Britain. Others are old professions having to learn new tricks. All are poised precariously between the public and private sectors.
' David Walker looks at three groups of people carrying through a radical shift in values.
1: Enterprising Professors Under financial pressure, nearly every university and college in the land has started to talk about commercial contracts and new ways of attracting students, especially from overseas. Into the groves of academe have come the professional fund-raisers and the philosophy of the market place.

The Rediscovery of Politics
Six talks on authority, culture and community in the USSR given by Geoffrey Hosking , Professor of Russian History at London University's School of Slavonic and East European Studies.
4: The Flawed Melting Pot
'The Soviet Union is a decidedly unusual imperial entity. It is numerically dominated by one nation, the Russians. But that domination has not enabled the Russians to flourish economically, even by comparison with many of their ostensible 'colonies'. Nor have the languages and cultures of the principal non-Russian peoples withered. The truth is that this is not in the normal sense a Russian empire. It is a communist one, perhaps the first empire in history to be ruled over by a political party. From that fact flow the anomalies and contradictions of this unprecedented multi-national union.'
The Reith Lectures are printed weekly in the 'Listener'.

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.
