: PAIN, SUGGESTION, PLACEBO

Learning to Study Subjective Responses by Henry K. Beecher
Dorr Professor of Research In Anaesthesia at Harvard University ' I want to discuss placebos-a pinch of table salt, a dash of baking soda; inert substances, in fact-as a tool for studying in a quantitative way certain fascinating influences of suggestion on our minds and bodies.' Dr. Beecher had a long-standing interest in the effects of drugs on sleep but was led into a study of problems of pain, not least by his wartime experiences at Anzio.

: BACH

Trio-Sonata No. 5, in C major
(S.529)
Concerto No. 2, in A minor after
Vivaldi (S.593) played on a pedal harpsichord by Stanislav Heller
In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. German organists used to practise at home on clavichords and harpsichords fitted with pedal-boards: in our mechanised age we can easily forget that to practise on the organ in those days man-power was needed at the bellows. The pedal-harpsichord was built as a separate instrument with its own strings, the ordinary harpsichord standing over or upon it. Bach had several pcdalharpsichords although it is unlikely that he ever wrote any music specifically for them. However, such things as the organ trio-sonatas surely belong to the kind of non-liturgical repertoire that would have been used for pnvate performance at home.

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.

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.
