A biologist's reflections on the human brain by J. Z. Young, F.R.S. Professor of Anatomy at University College, London
3—The Human
Calculating Machine
In this lecture Professor Young is concerned with the organisation of the human brain. Using the analogy of modern calculating machines, he describes the various parts of the brain and the way each part contributes to our emotional* behaviour and our thinking. He ends by emphasising that, in spite of recent research, more information is required before we can adequately understand how the brain works.

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.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.
