6.0 Mr. HENRY RHODES : ' Verdicts horn Dust'
MODERN police methods have become so thorough that most of us have little knowledge of the subtle ways in which the police track down their victims. Did you know, for instance, that i t is quite possible to tell a man's calling by an examination ot the wax in his ears ? It is often by the little things, the minutiae of a man's life, that most is discoverable about him; similarly, it is by means of a microscopic examination of the ' professional dusts (as, for instance, the specks and flecks on clothing are called) that a man's crime may bo unerringly detected today. It is about those little, but very important, factors in modern police evidence that Mr. Rhodes, who is General Secretary of the British Association of Chemists, will talk this evening.
THIS series is a continuation of the science series which ran throughout the Tuesdays of last session. In this first talk, Professor Graham Kerr , who is Regius Professor of Zoology in the University of Glasgow, and has written several books on zoology, embryology, evolution, and the biological aspects of citizenship, will describe the haunts, movements, feeding, breathing, etc., of the amoeba, one of the lowest forms of life.

For years the pages of the New Statesman have been enlivened, week by week, with an article (a 'Middle' is the technical term) mysteriously signed ' Y. Y.' It is an open secret now that beneath those cryptic initials hides the name of the literary editor of a London daily and one of the best essayists of our time, Robert Lynd. Like good conversation, the good essay depends far more upon the manner of its telling than upon the matter told. Thus, Mr. Lynd can lend an air of 'worth-whileness' to almost any subject under the sun: Whether he writes of gnats or an apple before breakfast, dirt-track racing or the advantages of a monarchy, cabbages or kings, the effect upon the reader will be the same - that of having engaged in friendly conversation with one whose mind is stored with a long experience that has bred commonsense and good humour.
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.
