6.0 Mr. Henry Rhodes: 'Verdicts from 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 it is quite possible to tell a man's calling by an examination of 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 be 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.

: Mr. Robert Lynd: Thoughts on anything

For years the pages of the New Stateman 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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
