A series of seven talks
At the end of the war, when the new Town and Country Planning Acts began to come into operation, the post-war programme of reconstruction and new building was commonly expected to last about twenty years. These talks are an attempt to assess some of the failures and achievements in planning and architecture over the first half of this period and to outline some new conceptions that might find support in the next decade.
1—Planning: Local and Regionalby H. Myles Wright
Lever Professor of Civic Design in the University of Liverpool
Most people in this country are now agreed in deploring the further outward growth of the conurbations and big industrial cities while much of their central districts remains decayed; the reappearance of ribbon development; and the continued merging of town and country into the half-and-half land recently labelled ' subtopia.' Professor Wright suggests some possible new lines of action.

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.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
