Horizon attempts to clarify the misconceptions and confusions surrounding this emotive subject and investigates some of its present-day uses in medicine. Tonight's programme includes film of a Caesarean operation in which the mother was helped by hypnosis used in conjunction with a general anesthetic - probably for the first time in Britain. During the human struggles between the British and German air forces there was a secret war whose battles were lost or won unknown to the public.
From to Allied and Axis scientists threw their weight into the war knowing that their influence would have enormous consequences for mankind. The secret battles for air supremacy, the inventions, the measures and the countermeasures are part of a story which scientists tell in tonight's programme. A wee dram of C A Scottish chemist has recently thought up an unusual application for Scotch whisky: One over the eighty: In two weeks' time it will be a criminal offence to have more than eighty milligrams of alcohol per hundred millilitres of blood while in charge of a motor car.
What does this level mean? How will the scientific analyses be carried out? Only in recent years have we had the techniques to investigate the depths of the oceans. But we are ill adapted for this new conquest; to us it is a hostile environment. Under water we are inefficient and inadequate compared with the giant fish and the sea mammals whose world it is.
Horizon looks at how scientists are helping men enter this new world. Titian's painting ' Bacchus and Ariadne ' is said to be worth between 12 million and million and is urgently in need of repair. How does a modern restorer set about preserving for a few more centuries a year-old masterpiece? The worst crash in aviation history killed people. In the next decade, jet airliners will carry up to five hundred passengers and fly faster than sound. Their airframes and engines will be tested to the most extreme safety limits. But what of the pilot who will fly these planes?
Will we be able to test his ability in this critical job in a comparable fashion? An extraordinary film shows the hazardous existence of a caterpillar Thaumetopoea Pityocampa , but the wake of destruction it leaves behind in its struggle for survival has forced French biologists to declare war on the species. What were the processes of creativity taking place in the mind of an Einstein formulating relativity? Or of a Shakespeare composing a sonnet? Can experiments on rats or monkeys tell us anything about human behaviour in science and art?
Arthur Koestler takes a critical look at some theories of human creativity and puts his own views. An American ex-bell boy, Ted Serios claims to be able to project his thoughts on to film and TV cameras. For five years he has worked with a reputable psychiatrist, and academic staff of Denver University, who believe the phenomenon is genuine; undoubtedly pictures are produced.
For two days in the U. Is this a case for science to take seriously? Or is he a trickster? Some enchanting questions for enquiring minds asked by Professor Julius Sumner Miller on walking toys, singing toys, swimming toys, flying toys. Do you own a toy? Did you ever own a toy? Then Julius ' Walt Disney called me a genius' Sumner Miller can provide a few scientific questions to worry you with. Portrait of Professor Sir John Baker one of this country's most distinguished engineers. It traces his career from his early work on airships in the s, on air-raid shelter design during the war, to his present-day influence on young engineers in his department at Cambridge.
Each year In Britain thousands of strays are destroyed-yet medical research is desperately short of experimental animals. Some American doctors argue that our research is held back by a lack of suitable animals. How necessary is vivisection? Could research still be done without the laboratory animal? Horizon reports tonight from America and Britain on the antivivisection lobby and the medical research that many argue would be impossible without the use of 'man's best friends'. In England addicts get their heroin, and often cocaine, on the National Health Service: Does our present system make It too easy for the casual drug experimenter to become a hard-core addict?
Is there anything we can learn from the American situation? Horizon, with the guidance of a British psychiatrist, looks at some of the lessons which treatment centres in the U. The family car is the proudest possession of twentieth - century, town-dwelling man, but we cannot fit it smoothly into our expanding cities. Professor Colin Buchanan shows the overwhelming importance of this gap In town-planning and points to a future that could be liberated by the motor vehicle, or strangled by it.
The Washkansky heart transplant triggered enormous public concern for the ethics of 'interference' with the human body. But we are at the beginning of a biological revolution where events are bypassing or out-dating today's moral problems. Just how much can we hope to add usefully to the human body? Could a limb or even a brain be transplanted? Can organs be stored so that the life of one man is not dependent on the death of another?. We grow up with the attitude that happiness should be ours by right and when we don't get it we feel personally singled out for ill-treatment.
Our cry of anguish is ' Why does this happen to me and why are all the others getting this bliss? A personal view by an eminent social psychiatrist of the pleasures and problems of life in Britain in in comparison with a very different culture he knows intimately-Hindu village life in Northern India. He looks at some of our deeply rooted beliefs and how they affect our behaviour towards among other things, bereavement, sex, happiness and old-age; and at some of our growing social problems such as the rapidly increasing phenomenon of attempted suicide.
In Britain the crime of murder, the most serious of crimes, leads to the most serious punishment. The investigation of murder and the presentation of evidence always demands the utmost care in proving a man's guilt 'beyond all reasonable doubt' for his liberty will depend on it. The certainty and ingenuity of science is helping more and more to establish the outcome of a case.
The scientifically trained detective at the scene of the crime, the pathologist in the mortuary, and the biochemist in the laboratory can each supply the piece of the jigsaw that solves the crime, and often a routine scientific test can establish guilt more decisively than half a dozen eye-witnesses. Narrated by Christopher Chataway , the episode covered the achievements and failures of Churchill 's war-time science advisor Professor Frederick Lindemann. Many farmers think the future lies in the factory farm. This means keeping animals permanently indoors where they can be made to turn food into flesh far more quickly than out in the fields.
It has worked with chickens and now it looks like the turn of other animals. Do these methods really work? Do the animals suffer? Horizon looks at some changes that are taking place on the farm. Alex Comfort one of looks into the age-old quest to prolong human life and investigates the latest scientific theories.
What is the process taking place in our body that makes us age? Is ageing a kind of clock-mechanism that could be slowed down and how? Can the social scientist do something to change this attitude which leads to our frightening negligence towards old people? Can the biologist-and the British biologist in particular, do something to make our lives longer? Rocketry, electronics, and nuclear bombs have radically changed the outward face of war. Robot missiles automatically seek and destroy their targets while 1,mph strike planes hedge-hop on radar guidance.
But behind the battlefield is a huge sub-structure of research, where a computer can solve tactical problems in seconds, or a new weapon destroy military principles overnight, how far are Britain's defence policies governed by the work of her secret army of scientists on the weapons and techniques of tomorrow? Narrated by Christopher Chataway , the episode covered the methods of psychiatric therapist, Irene Kassorla . A surprising number of children, bright, perceptive, and apparently normal, seem unable to comprehend language.
To some, writing is meaningless and they can never decipher words or numbers. To others, speech has no significance and they react to the spoken word as if they were listening to some incomprehensible tongue. Horizon looks at this seemingly inexplicable phenomenon and attempts to throw some light on the problems facing these children.
It shows the work being done to help them, and how they learn to participate in our highly literate society. The Talgai Skull is the name given to an ancient fossilised skull which was uncovered in a paddock in Southern Queensland in The skull caused a sensation in scientific circles in , but it is only recently that serious attempts have been made to establish its age. Macintosh, Professor of Anatomy at the University of Sydney, believes the skull could throw light on the origin of the aborigines-to link them with remains of other ancient men found in Java. The first task facing Macintosh was to discover exactly where the skull was found, and the bulk of the film traces the fascinating detective work that went on in the small rural communities of the Darling Downs in Queensland, and the frustrations involved in getting accurate information so long after the event.

For divers, seamen, and most often bathers, the word shark in many parts of the world spells danger, sometimes death. Not all species are dangerous, but some are killers. At laboratories in the United States and Australia scientists are trying to find the answers. Especially, how are sharks able to detect a swimmer from great distances, and why do they attack some and not others? Tonight Horizon presents an Australian film which examines our attempts to understand one of the oldest inhabitants of the sea, and perhaps learn from the shark how we may live in the ocean environment.
Covering the physics behind weather patterns and cloud-doctoring experiments. The family of man began to evolve from the primate order about 15 million years ago but how have we changed since then? Where did we come from; what did our ancestors look like and how did they live? The great detective story has traced our origins back to the extinct ape-man of Africa-probably mankind's earliest pre-human ancestor; from the Transvaal comes the skull of an ape-man child, bearing the marks of a fatal leopard attack made about two million years ago.
In a pre-Neanderthal cave in the centre of modern Nice detailed analysis of the patterns of shells, rocks, and bones found on the floor has revealed an exact picture of how man once built his camp there , years ago. Horizon looks at the work of archaeologists and scientists who are digging for similar evidence of man's earlier. Until now Americans have chosen to receive, and pay for, their medical treatment privately. But in the face of a national shortage of doctors and rapidly rising prices, the private enterprise system seems to be in danger of breaking down.
Horizon examines some of the nightmarish situations that have developed in this system, and shows that more and more Americans, fearing illness more for what it might do to their bank balances than to their bodies, are looking enviously at the free universal treatment - for all its shortcomings - enjoyed under national health services like our own. The Natural History Museum is a place of enthusiasts: Their job is to look after and do research on one of the largest collections of living organisms in the world.
Tonight's programme is a chance to look behind the scenes of a well-known institution. It is also about the public who visit it and the people who work there. The present measles epidemic highlights many of the problems of viral disease which face us all. Do you risk the possibility of infection with the danger of permanent disability, even death, or do you use vaccines, the only established preventive, but which in the past have themselves been the cause of severe disablement?
This programme weighs the risks and asks: What are the prospects for chemical cures for viral diseases? And above all, what has happened to the most remarkable drug of all: Horizon reports on a remarkable new series of experiments that may be the turning point in this battle against the viruses that afflict man. It's almost inconceivable, with our climate, that we should be in danger of a water shortage. Yet some areas already suffer a semi-drought every summer, industrial development is threatened, and the situation is certainly going to get worse.
There is, of course, no shortage of rain here, but most of it runs to waste down our rivers, and with land at such a premium the construction of new reservoirs can no longer be expected to match the increasing demand. There are alternatives, numbers of them, but each provides the engineers and scientists with a complexity of problems. Controlling the flow of a river may radically change, even destroy, its wildlife. Placing barrages across our biggest estuaries like the Wash and Morecambe Bay may do the same and more.
At Morecambe they are investigating the very real possibility that the ports of Heysham and Barrow-in-Furness may be silted up completely. Horizon looks at the work of our scientists as they try to unravel the problems of providing us with more water. Do we really know what goes on where 'vivisection' is practised and why these experiments are supposed to be necessary?
Do the benefits obtained justify man's using the other animals for his own health and well-being? Horizon shows people on both sides of a very wide gulf - the anti-vivisectionists whose opposition is outspoken, and the scientists who carry out this work but rarely speak out for fear of stirring up even more opposition. Thirty thousand children in this country today are mentally subnormal.
They will never grow up. Their intelligence has been permanently and profoundly damaged, often without warning and with no known cause. What sort of future can these children expect? This programme examines new techniques which enable such children to overcome low intelligence and master ordinary skills of living.
It looks at how psychologists try to solve their learning difficulties in the hope of breaking down the barriers of incomprehension. Horizon reports on the changing outlook for children who are, as one doctor calls them, strangers in their own country. Insecticides are fast becoming redundant, not just because of their severe side effects, but simply because they are fast losing their effectiveness. More and more pests are becoming resistant. So alternatives must be found, and Horizon looks at the efforts both here and abroad to discover and apply them.
It's work in which the scientists themselves may seem to display a fiendish cunning as they experiment with techniques that range from subtly interfering with the pest's sex life to a bizarre use of tin foil to fool the ubiquitous aphid. But one fact stands out. The pest problem is nowhere more complicated than in an ordinary British field.
Among the Yakut Indians the woodpecker is a prized animal. Its blood is used against scrofula; a powder prepared from a mummified woodpecker is used against high fever; contact with the beak is used as a toothache cure. These practices may seem typical of bizarre primitive superstition, but to Professor Claude Levi -Strauss, the French anthropologist, they suggest a process of thinking just as valid as any in civilised medicine. For more than 30 years now, Professor Levi-Strauss has been studying and analysing the mind and behaviour of so-called primitive man.
What he has found has turned out to be so subtle and complex that his theories should revolutionise the way that civilised man thinks of himself. Ever since the first landships arrived at the front line in , disguised as water cisterns or 'tanks' they have played a dominant part in land warfare. In their year history from tin-pot adolescence to computerised old age, tanks have demonstrated how military thinking often lags a whole generation behind technology.
It took 20 years for the Army to become convinced that tanks had outmoded the cavalry and another 20 to get its design priorities straight. With film never before seen on television, Horizon follows this year history up to the present-a present in which the British Army may have an obsolete weapon on its hands without realising it.
Once, machines copied only man's physical activities - now they can mimic many of his mental processes. How long before they can design their own ' intelligent' programmes, how long before they become man's intellectual superior? What chance do you have of getting a better job? Today, applying for one often means submitting to innumerable tests not only of ability and intelligence but also of personality. But just how valid are these tests? Horizon examines some of the techniques used by the boom industry of Management Selection and follows two candidates through their ordeal.
San Francisco is, literally, a city that waits to die. It faces destruction from an earthquake which, scientists warn, could kill , people. The earthquake is inevitable and imminent, and yet it's claimed that there has been a scandalous neglect in applying already existing knowledge to reduce hazards. Five thousand children, for example, go to schools sited directly on the actual earthquake faults and in the earthquake predicted those children will be killed.
Horizon tells the story of the small group of scientists who, in a struggle against apathy, are trying to save their city. They are also involved in crucial experiments which are already enabling them to predict some earthquakes and which in the near future will enable them to realise the hitherto science-fiction dream of preventing earthquakes. This week's programme in the series on Man and Science today examines whether our Civil Defence plans - many of them secret - are adequate if Britain ever has to fight a nuclear war.
The film contains sequences of secret government and military establishments never before seen on television. Restricted Home Office films to advise the public in the event of war are shown for the first time. According to present plans, you may be able to cross to France by Channel Tunnel in - official.
But after years of hopes and fears in which all plans have been killed by a mixture of claustrophobia and xenophobia, the last major obstacle is a credibility gap. Is it now at last possible that a tunnel will be built? A look at how British Railways has dealt with accidents, accident investigation and safety measures. For every crash, a newer and safer system is put into place to prevent it from happening again.
The earliest known fossil remains of a polar bear come from Kew. So, when polar bears swam in the Thames, did Britain really look like present-day Greenland? What was the Ice Age? Was it so long ago? Will it happen again? Horizon reports on deafness in Britain today, including the provision of aids for the deaf and the dangers of noise induced deafness. Despite the sophistication of aviation technology, airport safety still depends on a surprisingly small group of people. For this action film Horizon spent a month at London Heathrow - the world's largest, and probably safest, international airport - recording that side of airport activity the passengers never seethe work of those who guard the critical margin between safety and what could prove a national disaster.
Should we concrete them over, and use them as reserved tracks for high speed buses?
Or replace them with mph vehicles, guided, driven and supported by electro-magnets? Britain's railways were the engineering triumph of the industrial revolution but, say some economists, they are outmoded in the 20th century. Other kinds of public transport could be much better value. Horizon takes a realistic look at the new ideas and technologies that threaten our existing railway system - and at the research British Rail is doing to meet the challenge.
Controlled nuclear fusion means taming the hydrogen bomb. It could solve the world's energy shortage but it's an enormous engineering challenge. Documentary examining the role manual skills play in modern industry. Industries featured are Nuclear engineering, Shipbuilding, Steel production. Skilled machinists and welders talk frankly about how they feel their skills are valued.
Horizon investigates the growing tendency in hospitals to induce childbirth by injecting hormones into mothers. Documentary on the likely effects of the drought in Britain. How are animal experiments carried out in Britain and what would be at risk if they were controlled more strictly? Horizon investigates whether first contact with aliens has already occurred.
The publication of ' Chariots of the Gods? It concludes that von Daniken's thesis relies on unrelated facts, false similarities and phoney evidence. Documentary about the physiological and psychological effects of living in a zero-g space station, built around NASA library film from Project Skylab.
Skylab astronauts and other experts discuss the ultimate limitation on spaceflight duration, as well as the exhilaration of being free of gravity. Horizon examines the rise of the microprocessor and asks if automation presents a problem for the future of British industry. Manganese nodules carpet parts of the deep ocean floor. They're potentially a highly valuable source of minerals. Horizon looks at the engineering challenge of harvesting them, and the knotty problems such a venture would pose for international law.
A look at the world's leading hibernation research projects shows that the apparently simple business of dozing off for the winter is, in fact, an extremely difficult trick to learn. The only hope is that the whole process is triggered by a special 'hibernation hormone'. It hasn't been found yet, but more than one laboratory is hot on the trail.
Imagine yourself shrunk to less than a millimetre, travelling down a blood vessel. It's a popular science-fiction idea but. We travel inside the main arteries of the body and past the narrow capillaries of the skin where red blood cells must flow in single file. We go along the carotid artery into the delicate tracery of the brain and down into the massive cavity of the heart itself. We see the biological processes at work within the body and explore the changes within the arteries that can lead to the heart failures and strokes which take the lives of , Britons every year.
The voyage is made possible by the unique camera techniques developed by Swedish photographer Dr Lennart Nilsson. Ten years ago his images of the developing foetus in the womb brought him international recognition. In this film he documents another hidden world - the surprisingly beautiful one within our body's arterial system. Mexico, the lazy land of the sombrero and siesta, is fast becoming a country of hard-hats and hard work.
The recent discovery of huge oil fields in the southern states of Mexico has stirred the government and people to unprecedented efforts. Could Mexico turn out to be another Kuwait? As exploration for new oil expands, could the country eventually match the giant reserves of the world's top producer, Saudi Arabia? Horizon investigates what effect Mexico might have on an oil hungry world-and the effect of oil on Mexico and the Mexicans themselves. Mexico is already exporting oil - some of it by accident.
Dark Nights: Metal - Wikipedia
The world's worst-ever oil spill, from a rig in the Gulf of Campeche. As we move into the 80s, Horizon takes a final look over its shoulder at the last ten years. It's been a decade of contrasts; Concorde and man-powered flight, test-tube babies and abortion, nuclear reactors and solar roofs, micro-processors and meditation. The 70s opened with men walking on the moon. It ends with an energy crisis, inflation and unemployment. Roundup of efforts to recycle more of our waste, narrated by Tony Britton. In Japan the development of a voice-controlled word processor will revolutionise their offices.
In Sweden 'text inspectors' have to check on any illegal entries on computer files.
List of apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction
In Britain Prestel can supply all kinds of information into homes and offices. Horizon examines some of the more far-reaching and subtle effects of the new information age. Can we foresee any of the cultural changes that lie ahead? Helens erupted last May, it did much more damage than geologists had expected. Horizon looks at the aftermath of the devastating explosion, and at the beginnings of environmental recovery. Horizon presents a portrait of renowned economist John Maynard Keynes.
It follows his life story, his ideas on economics and his contributions to the arts. A hang-glider pilot, a miner and a lorry driver-they all happily accept risks every day, but now they are threatened with a nuclear power station on their doorsteps. Yet according to the experts, they have no need to worry, as the risk is minute compared with the hazards in their normal lives. How accurate are the experts' figures, and why is it that people nevertheless do not believe that a nuclear power station, or a petrochemical complex like Canvey Island is safe?
No major technological undertaking is completely without risk. But how are governments to decide what is an 'acceptable' risk, one that is seen to be fair and justifiable by the majority of the population? Richard Feynman talks about his life. Horizon investigates the current state of computer and analogue graphics by interviewing assists and scientists involved with scientific and technical modelling, 3D movie animation, and computer gaming. Astronauts saw them on the way to the moon.
Television screens across the world carried dramatic pictures of them on New Year's Eve Unidentified flying objects - UFOs - undoubtedly exist. In most cases those who see UFOs are not mad or drunk, but responsible adults who are sincerely convinced that they have witnessed something very strange. And the sightings are not just visual - UFOs have been photographed, filmed and tracked on radar.
So are these sightings evidence of spacecraft from other worlds-or of something more down to earth? Tonight's programme examines some of the more classic UFO cases and comes up with at least one rather startling possibility. A history of space exploration starting from the dawn of the space age in with the launch of Sputnik to the Space Shuttle Columbia. Is it possible to read someone's mind or foretell the future? Do some people have psychic powers or a sixth sense? Most scientists would emphatically say no, and that the many people who believe in such things are credulous, irrational and unscientific.
We talk to the leading critics of the new research, who reflect the views of the scientific establishment that ESP really stands for Error Some Place - and we show some scientists' recent attempts to answer their critics by taking ESP out of the laboratory and putting it to the test in the world of commerce, crime, archaeology and warfare. Barney Clark died in March, having survived days with the world's first permanent pneumatic total artificial heart.
Horizon follows the case with the surgeon, William DeVries, and looks at the prospects for this technology to save lives. On 1 August Dr Joseph Priestley discovered an unknown gas-oxygen: Professor Ian Fells shows how we are still trying to understand the links between oxygen and living things. The Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University, he made his name by discovering that black holes are not necessarily black - some of them shine.
Afflicted by a terrible illness, Professor Hawking relies on his young students to help him In his work - an ambitious programme to unify all the disparate theories of physics into one ultimate theory of everything. If he succeeds, then his discipline, theoretical physics, may have only 20 years or so to go before it comes to an end. Each year in Britain four million animals, including rats, mice, rabbits, dogs and monkeys are used for animal experiments; their bodies are the testing ground for new products as well as for the advance of scientific knowledge.
Scientists maintain that without these animal experiments our future health and safety would be dangerously at risk. Yet to many of us the very idea of animals being used in this way is repugnant.
Are all these animal experiments essential or useful? Could they be replaced by cell cultures, computer models and other sophisticated laboratory techniques which would relieve or remove that suffering and death? Does it have to be either our well-being or animal welfare? An investigation into the alternatives to that cruel choice. In Dr Norman Borlaug was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for advances in agricultural technology which had produced new 'miracle' rice and wheat. The Green Revolution had arrived; it was hoped that world hunger would disappear. But in the years which followed the new technology only seemed to make the rich farmers richer and the poor farmers poorer.
How have agricultural scientists responded to this? Through the eyes of an economist, Keith Griffin President of Magdalen College, Oxford Horizon looks critically at the new 'Green Revolution' as scientists work in Mexico, Bangladesh and the Philippines to help the poor grow more food. Their new approach may offer some hope - but unless there are equal changes in economic and political structures are other kinds of revolution inevitable? The Case of the Hillside Strangler".
Report, using material of the time, of the moon landing , and discussion on the USA's space programme. Investigates the history of germ warfare and the threat of a new biological arms race. Chickens packed in battery cages, pigs in metal crates so small they can't turn round - that's what modern farming means to many people, and they're against it. But what do the animals feel about it all? Scientists are now studying farm animals to find out more about their natural behaviour and about how farmers can change the way they treat them, in the hope of improving farm productivity and making life better for them.
And they've come up with some surprising evidence from experiments that include lambs in balaclava helmets, hens laying multicoloured eggs, pigs building nests - and a group of chickens that roundly rejected an influential government report on welfare. Report on the passage of the European Giotto spacecraft as it passes through the tail of Halley's Comet. The virus that causes AIDS has become one of the most intensively studied disease-causing organisms in the history of science.
Its anatomy has been dissected, and the way it penetrates the body's defences understood. This year a vaccine has reached the crucial stage of testing in monkeys. And a powerful new drug may offer some hope to sufferers. But the more AIDS researchers learn, the more worried they become. The virus has now infected 20 million people across the globe; it is spreading sexually between males and females; and attacking not only the immune system, but also the brain. Eventually, hundreds of thousands of young people with AIDS may require specialised mental health care. There are clocks in your body which, left to themselves, would have you live a hour day.
Tampering with them, just by working the wrong shift pattern, may lead to illness, or may affect your ability to have a child. Understanding body-clocks helps to cure winter depression, warns of death rhythms in unborn babies, leads to pills for reducing jet-lag, gives longer lives to some cancer patients - and may even provide cheaper meat.
How can science help in the investigation of political kidnappings and mass murder? Argentina's military juntas were responsible for torturing and killing over 10, people. Today their bones are their only witnesses. By exhuming unmarked graves, forensic scientists are identifying individual victims and finding important evidence to bring those responsible to justice.
Many of the 'Children of the Disappeared' have survived because they were illegally taken by military families who may have been involved in their parents' murder. When grandparents eventually trace their grandchildren, the only way they can get them back is to prove their real identity by genetic testing.
In Wells Cathedral there is a clue to the origin of rheumatoid arthritis. It is one tiny piece in the puzzle that has vexed doctors for years: Is it an infection by bacteria or viruses? Is it stress or diet? Intense research this century has answered some of these questions, only to reveal more Will it suddenly disappear as rapidly as it appeared? The ultimate cause, and a cure, remain to be found, but recent discoveries offer some hope for the million Britons who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. The information-hungry world of the 21st century will be fed not by electrical signals, but by pulses of invisible laser light flying along fibres of glass.
What is the revolution in communications that has ousted electricity in favour of light? With crashing motorbikes, stretching trains and a semiconductor laser the size of a department store, Horizon investigates the mysterious world of light technology and, at the frontiers, finds plans for computers that will process information with light. Janice Blenkharn faces the hardest choice of her life. Whether or not she wants to be told if she will develop an incurable genetic disease called Huntington's disease. Every child of an affected parent has a chance of inheriting it. Janice's mother died of Huntington's Chorea, so Janice is at risk.
If she develops it, then her children will be at risk. Until now, there has been no way of knowing who will be affected and who spared. But thanks to painstaking research in a remote South American fishing village, a test now exists. It offers Janice, and others at risk from this fatal disease, the chance to see into the future. For sufferers of Parkinson's Disease , hope lies in a new experimental operation - a brain transplant - and the first on a human being is just about to take place.
This remarkable technique may one day also treat patients with Alzheimer's Disease , strokes and paralysing spinal cord injuries, yet promises to be surrounded by controversy because of the source of the transplanted tissue. Deep in a Japanese cave, a star's last moments are detected by signals from particles which have travelled through , light years of space, and then through the earth itself. It was the most important event in any living astronomer's lifetime, because dying stars are central to the life of our universe.
So when the supernova appeared in the southern sky last February, the world's astronomers turned every available instrument on to it. This unique international collaboration has given fascinating insights into one of the universe's most violent events. The programme follows the supernova's story, from its first sighting in Chile to Australia, America and Japan.
Manic depression is a crippling emotional illness. It carries a high risk of suicide. It is now known that it has a strong genetic component. Those genes affect over one per cent of humanity: Is manic depression simply another genetic cross that mankind has to bear, or do these genes also convey some sort of advantage that helps to explain their survival? Many manic depressives are creative - is it in spite of their illness - or because of it?
And what has madness to do with poetry, art, music, literature and leadership? The Super Dimension Fortress Macross. The anime series and its sequels rewritten and combined with The Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross and Genesis Climber Mospeada to create Robotech ', which dealt similarly with post-apocalyptic themes.
