One Pair of Eyes

Happiness is Wheel-Shaped says Tom Wolfe in tonight's programme in this series of highly personal films.
Cars have always been dream symbols for the working American. But today it is not the mass-produced model from Detroit which dominates the lives of thousands of Californians but their own customised, sculpted machine-be it car, motorcycle, or even tricycle. In his One Pair of Eyes, the American writer TOM WOLFE explores some of the cults of the internal combustion engine which are currently obsessing Californians of all classes.

The Book Programme

Introduced by Robert Robinson
The books of R. D. LAiNG-The Divided Self, The Politics of Experience and Knots - made him a cult hero in the 1960s and the most influential of present-day psychiatrists. His new book, The Facts of Life, attempts to answer the question. ' Who am I? '. Made up of fragments of autobiography, lectures, journals and reflections, the book suggests that we may remember and re-enact our own conception and life before birth and is also an attack on the heartless methods of many scientific processes. In an interview filmed in his consulting room in North London, R. D. Laing talks about The Facts of Life.

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.
