A biologist's reflections on the human brain by J. Z. Young, F.R.S ., Professor of Anatomy at University College, London
8-Made in What Image?
Throughout his lectures Professor Young has drawn attention to a characteristic habit of the human brain-the habit of comparing new information with models already established in it by past experience, the alternation of certainty with doubt. New models are constantly required by scientists for the interpretation of new discoveries. In his final lecture Professor
Young comments on the models used by previous generations of biologists and indicates the new sort of comparisons modern scientists will have to make if they are to interpret adequately the latest research into the processes of life.

The Great Land-mass
Talk by G. F. Hudson
In the second of two talks on the Atlantic voyages that culminated in the discovery of America, G. F. Hudson , Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, describes the course of the expeditions from southern Europe in the fifteenth century. These Portuguese and Spanish voyages led first to the settlement of Madeira and the Canaries and then to the discovery of the West Indies and South America; through them the great land-miss, the hidden continent, was revealed. Mr. Hudson atso considers the claim, revived by a speaker at last year's meetings of the British Association, that the Portuguese explorer Dualmo. and not Columbus, was the first man property to * discover America.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
