THE old churches of Finchley and Hendon are both mediæval buildings with interesting architectural features, but Hendon Church was transformed by its incorporaticn, Home years ago, into a great new building. There is now a danger that the character of Finchley Church-one of the last ' village churches ' surviving within the ever-widening area if London-may be similarly altered, so this talk by Mr. Allen. Walker, the well-known lecturer on the architecture and antiquities of London, comes at a particularly opportune moment.
T ISTENERS will remember a talk on South Africa that Miss Minty Lamb broadcast some time ago. This evening she will give some impressions gathered along the route taken by the Prince of Wales in his tour last year.

BIOLOGY, in what may be called its social aspect, is very much in the public eye just now, and the subject of heredity has attracted a vast amount of research in recent years. Not only is Mrs. Adams an expert on heredity, but as a lecturer in biology under the Cambridge University Board of Extra Mural Studies, with much experience of taking biology classes for working people, she knows how to treat this important scientific topic in an attractive way.
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.
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.
