Psychoanalysis in the public sphere, 1968–88
Richard Bates

psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott, who used series of 1940s BBC broadcasts to address the psychical effects of World War II on children, especially evacuees and those living apart from their parents. 2 France’s relationship with radio was transformed by the country’s experience of World War II. In the 1930s, the main attractions of French broadcasting were music and drama; coverage of news and current affairs was generally disappointing, especially on the somewhat ponderous public networks. 3 Vichy’s public radio, though it became

In line with the ‘hands-off’ approach of lawyers, Kennedy’s early work stressed that decisions should rest solely with the medical profession; but this stance changed after he encountered bioethics during a spell in the United States. In 1980 Kennedy used the prestigious BBC Reith Lectures to endorse the approach that he explicitly labelled ‘bioethics’, critiquing

Baroness Warnock automatically gives moral authority to what are entirely immoral viewpoints’.15 Warnock’s views were seen as highly significant not for their rightness or wrongness, then, but more for the weight they carried thanks to her ‘moral authority’. We must not presume that this authority derived solely from her status as a member of the ‘Great and Good’ either, for other bioethicists are also regarded as highprofile and authoritative figures. In 1982 the BBC chose Jonathan Glover to present a Horizon programme on genetic engineering and enhancement, entitled
