: THE WORLD TODAY

Development by Partnership in the Sudan by Arthur Gaitskell , C.M.G.
One of the outstanding problems today is how to bring peoples of Africa, Asia, and the Middle East to a higher standard of living so that they can achieve and maintain political and economic independence. Help from the West is sometimes resented as imperialism, yet such help is essential, and the stability and friendship of the under-developed countries arg vital to the Webt. The problems encountered during the operation of the Gezira Scheme in the Sudan are typical of those now facing us in our relations with these peoples.
Arthur Gaitskell , lately Managing
Director of the Gezira Scheme, suggests that experience gained there can be applied in other parts of the world where poverty, combined with an awakening nationalism, endangers political stability.
To be repeated tomorrow at 9.30 a.m.

: SCIENCE AND FAITH

2— The Why and the How by R. L. F. Boyd Ph.D. I.C.I. Research Fellow at University College. London
In this series of talks, three active research scientists have been asked to comment upon the philosophical discourse with which Professor John Baillie opened the series. They all speak as committed Christians and the conflict they have to resolve between science and faith is a conflict within their own lives.
Dr. Boyd explains that it is the very essence of modern science that it should ask the question 'how' It owes its success to concentrating upon this part of knowledge, but, as a Christian, he is compelled to go on to ask the further question 'why.'

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.
