This month Chronicle, introduced by Kenneth Hudson , shows the contrast between urban and rural archaeology.
At Stone Age Skara Brae and Roman Vindolanda, where the finds are of whalebone tools and Roman writing tablets, the pressures and problems are not created by developers wanting the land. At Dunwich the threat is from the sea. But in Bath, Lincoln and London it's not only archaeology but the whole fabric of our historic cities which is being destroyed.

This Warner Brothers spectacular epitomised the Hollywood musical of the 30s. But against the show business background it also reflects economic hardship and the unemployment of the depression.

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.
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.
