IT is an old complaint, and has been the cause of dissatisfaction ever since the inauguration of the industriaf age, that machines, by displacing hands and by taking from the sense of creating, are a positive harm, even a retrogression. That is one view. Another is that machines abolish ' hard labour' (in America men don't dig, but machines do), and that under the reign of mechanistic devices men can change jobs more easily—since their jobs are mainly machine-minding. Moreover, mechanization is really habit; which, since it thereby frees man's mind and creative energies to play along . whatever directions he himself may choose, is not a bad thing. These are views which Dr. Delislo Burns will discuss at length tonight in his second talk in the series.
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.
