Observations on the Clonal Selection Theory of Acquired Immunity
Sir Macfarlane Burnet , O.M., F.R.S. in conversation with an English physician
The Australian biologist's talk, recorded during a recent visit to this country, considers the system of immunity we all Possess, its breakdown as in auto-immune disease, and the evolutionary, novel, and Perhaps productive way-the clonal selection theory — of approaching the medical Problems that arise when immunological responses are distorted. He looks at ageing and at cancer in the light of this theory, and speculates about its hopeful application to rheumatic fever and rheumatoid arthritis.

Traun! Bogen und Pfeil sind gut filr den Feind; Sind es Schmerzen. sind es Freuden; Liebe kam aus fernen Landen; So willst du des Armen; Ruhe. SUssIiebchen; Wie froh und frisch mein Sinn sich hebt; Treue Liebe dauert lange (Magelone Romances) : on a gramophone record
by Harold Pinter
[Starring] Maurice Denham
In his first play written for radio Harold Pinter, author of the controversial stage play The Birthday Party, uses words with skill and economy to examine what goes on beneath the surface of an apparently conventional domestic scene.
by Karl Miller
Mr. Miller speaks about some recent novels and about certain changes in taste that seem to have occurred in the writing and reception of the novel in England. He thinks that, while the use of some of the characteristic materials of poetry has come to be distrusted in the novel, it has also become clear that several of the best novels of the time have relied on borrowings of this kind. Dr. Zhivago is a recent example.
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.
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.
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.
