11.40 TALKS FOR SIXTH FORMS. The History of Science. 3—' Copernicus and the Planets.' Herbert Dingle , Professor of the History and Philosophy of Science in the University of London, gives the third of sixteen talks by various speakers on the origins and results of the Scientific Revolution, which culminated in the seventeenth century
The theory of Copernicus (1473-1543), which placed the sun instead of the earth at the centre of the universe, made the Scientific Revolution possible. But Copernicus himself was in no sense the originator of modern science, and the implications of his ideas did not begin to be realised until nearly a hundred years after his death.

Alan Drayton , a young student whose love for the new learning has taken him from his native Yorkshire up to Cambridge to study under Erasmus, gets involved in a Town v. Gown brawl and has to get out of England until it has blown over. Erasmus sends him to the old printer, Aldus Manutius, in Venice as the first step in a quest to recover the manuscript of a hitherto unknown play by the Greek comedian, Alexis. But the Duke of Molfetta, who wants the manuscript for himself, with the help of his unscrupulous agent, Cesare Morelli, waylays Alan and tries to kidnap him; so Alan makes plans to leave Venice secretly.

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.
