A group of four talks 1: Some Simple Rules by LEWIS WOLPERT
Lecturer in Zoology,
King's College, London
' How does the egg, itself largely without pattern, give rise to the complex shapes of the embryo?
Molecular biologists are now tackling this question. As Dr. Wolpert shows, to know the biochemistry of the genes-the DNA -is only part of the solution to this problem. We must find out more about how cell movements bring about changes in shape, and what forces are involved.

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.
