In this talk the speaker discusses the suggestion that the phenomena of precognition have some bearing on the freedom of the will and that they show that causation can work backwards in time. He argues that these mistaken ideas arise from the conscious or unconscious use of an inappropriate explanatory model.

Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, the solitary and outstanding figure in Dutch music of the sixteenth century, is the least known of all the great composers of the go:den age of polyphony. Born in 1562, a generation later than Patestrina, Lassus, Victoria, and Byrd, he looked back to the old contrapuntal tradition which he had learned from the writings of the Italian theorist Zarhno, and forward to the new homophonic style of the seventeenth century. The former aspecr predominates in his Psalms of David (which he set in their entirety) and the latter in his French and Italian madrigals. He was a brilliant harpsichordist and organist (crowds gathered to hear him play at the Old Church. Amsterdam), and was a pioneer in developing from the old keyboard chansons and variations the new form of the fugue, which passed through the North German school of organists and found its consummation in Bach.

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.
