: Mr. Eric Gillett : ' On Going East'

THE author of this talk has every qualification J- for speaking on such a subject, as ho is himself leaving England within a few days to become Professor of English Literature at Singapore. He was previously Warden of Chancellor's Hall, Edgbaston, and during that period he became well known to the Birmingham listening public, particularly for his sporting narratives.

: Prof. H. H. SWINNERTON, 'An Evolutionist among the Rocks and Fossils-VI, Few Threads, but Many Patterns. 'S.B. from Nottingham

IN his concluding talk, Professor Swinnerton will deal with the great lesson of evolution as study of the fossils reveals it. As the few notes of a piano suffice to produce endless variety in music, so tho few threads of serial change that the parts of an animal's body represent suffice to produce the ever-changing panorama of animal life.

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.

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.
