SCIENCE ANTI-SCIENCE

by Magnus Pyke , Ph.D., F.R.S.E.
Science has always had its opponents: they were usually unintelligent, often not important, and certainly not scientists. Now, Dr. Pyke believes, anti-scientists are appearing who are themselves scientists. Because antibioticresistant germs have appeared, because rabbits unaffected by myxomatosis are about, because good housing and food as well as freedom from infection reduce the incidence of tuberculosis, they imply that the scientific knowledge behind the achievements of antibiotics, rabbit destruction, public health, ana much else was accidental.
Dr. Pyke argues that over-confident scientists may be the new barbarians, but that this anti-scientific approach is the new nihilism.

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.
