: THE LEICESTERSHIRE EXPERIMENT

A discussion
Speakers:
Chairman: Stuart Maclure ,
Editor of Education
Stewart C. Mason, Director of Education for Leicestershire
Alec B. Clegg ,
Chief Education Officer.
West Riding of Yorkshire
C. Arrand,
Headmaster. Boys' County
Secondary School, Winchester
Harry Davies
Headmaster, High Pavement School,
Nottingham
In Leicestershire the new school year sees the start of a new experiment in secondary education. Stewart C. Mason , the Director of Education for Leicestershire, thinks that the 11-plus examination and the resultant segregation of children into grammar and secondary modern schools is an offence against reason and public conscience. The plan he has devised, and which is now being put into effect in two selected areas of the county, will mean the abolition of 11-plus segregation; and at the age of fourteen there will be transfer to the Grammar School without examination for all children whose parents choose it for them and promise to keep them there beyond sixteen.

: FAITH IN THE FACTS ?

or The Disappearing Documentary
An enquiry by Paul Ferris
The documentary film movement, which began in Britain in the early thirties, not only had a tremendous influence on film-making of all kinds and in all countries; by its films, of protest and poetry, it played its part in the social revolution of the forties. During the war and after it many documentaries were seen in the cinemas. Now many are still made, but scarcely any are seen by the public. For what purpose are they made, and who sees them? Can they-compare with films like Night Mail, Housing Problems, Fires Were Started, A Diary for Timolhy?
Paul Ferris sets out to answer these questions with the help of some pioneers:
John Grierson , Edgar Anstey
Sir Arthur Elton , Basil Wright some newer comers:
Lindsay Anderson
Geoffrey Busby Walter Lassally two public relations officers:
Derek Gladwell , Brian Trench

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.

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.
