: THE THIRD FREEDOM

Seven broadcasts on Freedom from Want
The meaning and threat of under-development and its consequence, world poverty: the methods and aims of the campaign against it; and the new ideas that lie behind them
3-Skills and Resources
Sir Charles Westlake
Chairman of the Uganda Electricity Board
Chief Kidaha Makwaia
Ritchie Calder
One way to tackle under-development is by providing power for industry, agriculture, and communications. Water, often a destroyer, can be harnessed to provide electricity-as it has been in the Owen Falls hvdro-electric scheme in Uganda. But industry and communications may create human problems which work against development. In this programme the speakers discuss what power can do to speed up development, and how to avoid some past mistakes arising from industrialisation.

by J. B. Priestley
1—Power and People
Mr. Priestley offers the view of ' a number of people who are beginning to think along certain lines.' He calls them ' the gentle anarchists.' In the first of two talks he describes how in the modern world we have allowed the machinery of power to breed and strengthen itself at our expense.

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.
