CZECHO-SLOVAKIA is off the familiar track for most English people, and it sounds even more remote under its post-war independent name than it did when it still bore the old name of Bohemia. But really it is not only a picturesque and delightful' country but quite an accessible one—all of which Mrs. Blanche Tufnell , General Secretary of the Czech Society of Great Britain, will explain this afternoon.

In his first talk Professor Burstall dealt generally with the ways in which heat is converted into power. Today he will go on to explain how it is that the internal-combustion engine uses so much more of the heat supplied to it than any other type, and he will sketch the essential features of a modern road motor - a subject about which, in this age of petrol, many of his listeners will already know a good deal.

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.
