AMERICA TODAY

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Agriculture
The First Big Business
R. I. James
The depression that has affected American agriculture for many years past, and the concentration of interest on industry with its greater financial rewards, has made us forget that the original ' big business' of America was the conquest of the land and the agricultural exploitation of its wealth, and that the spiritual ancestor of the present business man was the nineteenth-century agriculturist.
In this the second talk of the series, Mr. R. I. James , who is Lecturer in American History in the University of Bristol, will discuss the way in which American character, often imagined to be the product of too great devotion to ' big business', was historically formed long before the Industrial Revolution in the United States of America.

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.
