: TAKING STOCK

The Second House: Do we need a hereditary House of Lords?
Speakers:
Viscount Hailsham
Enoch Powell M.P , .
The Hon.
Anthony Wedgwood Benn M.P , .
Chairman:
H. G. Nicholas
Fellow of New College, Oxford
Early last month Viscount Simon's Life Peers Bill was given its first reading in the House of Lords. It proposes the appointment each year of not more than ten men or women as Lords of Parliament. They would rank as Barons and would sit and vote in the House of Lords. Their dignity as Lords of Parliament would not, however, descend to their heirs; their peerages would lapse when they died.
The introduction of this Bill raises once more the question of the form, the function, and the powers of the House of Lords. The discussion tonight covers many of the points in this controversy.

: SCIENCE SURVEY

A weekly programme about work in the world of science
Metals, Today and Tomorrow by A. J. Murphy
Professor of Industrial Metallurgy in the University of Birmingham
For the first time in history, engineers (according to Professor Murphy) just cannot have the metals they want, even if they are prepared to pay for them. In this talk he discusses the ever-increasing demand for metals and the ways in whidh the demand will have to be met, for example, by increased mining, more efficient production, and the most appropriate use of the metals we have.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
