Some three weeks after Association football has come in with a roar, 'Rugger' less obtrusively takes the field. There is no 'grand kick-off' when hundreds of whistles release thousands of players on the ball; but here and there the deserted stands of Rugby grounds fill up; the new-marked touchline is peopled with little groups of spectators; the teams come out, all looking a little plumper as to the person, a little cleaner as to the clothing, than one remembers them last year; and then, in five minutes, a mighty kick has taken the ball over the stand, the forwards have jumped at a line-out, and there they are again in the scrum, pushing and heeling in the well-remembered way. At this appropriate moment Major Tosswill will talk on this year's prospects for the leading clubs.

WHAT of the future ? is a question that titillates our imagination as few others can, because we have all the data on which to build and only the sketchiest ideas of probability to hold us in check. In this evening's discussion, however, the talkers will not build castles in the rarified air of the far future of Mr. H. G. Wells or Mr. Bernard Shaw ; they will tackle the more practical question of whither our present tendencies will have led us in another twenty years. In particular. they will deal with the prospects of developing order out of that chaos into which our growing towns and mushroom suburbs are now being ever more deeply plunged.
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

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
