From Dr Caligari to Hannibal Lector ,
Hollywood has had an infatuation with the screen psychiatrist. In a heady cocktail of drama, music and personal insight, Professor Anthony Clare analyses this obsession and takes in the four archetypal celluloid shrinks:
Dr Dippy (madderthan his patient); Dr Know-All (convinced he is infallible); Dr Evil (wicked manipulator of the mind); and Dr Love (combination of insight, compassion and sex appeal which turns patients to jelly).

The first of five programmes celebrates one of Britain's forgotten summer fruits - the cherry. Fifty years ago, our markets were full of our white-hearted cherries and black cherries. Auctions for the prized British cherry were held in Kent pubs. For the last 20 years it has been hard to buy an English cherry, but now new orchards are being planted and it's time for a revival. Derek Cooper tastes his way through French and Kent orchards. Producer Min Raisman
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.
