: SCIENCE SURVEY

Living Together (Symbiosis) by Kenneth Mather , C.B.E., F.R.S
.
Professor of Genetics in the University of Birmingham
Co-operation is a feature of living organisms from the level of cells to that of societies. Without it living things as we know them cannot exist. The problems involved are more obvious when only species and individuals are concerned, but they are there at all levels. Comparison of co-operation at different levels is revealing some of these problems and is enabling us to attack them.

: THE THURSDAY CONCERT

Claudio Arrau (piano)
.
The Sonata is one of five which Mozart
(Continued in next column) wrote during his visit to Paris in 1778, when he was twenty-two. Composed at about the same time as the haunting little Violin Sonata in E minor, it was the first of Mozart's piano sonatas to strike the deeper note of his later music. Claudio Arrau has described it as ' unique for the period and in all Mozart's works. It is a grand tragic sonata, in which tragedy is face to face with youthful rebellion at fate.'
Deryck Cooke

: THE RACE ISSUE AND AMERICAN SCHOOLS

Robert McKenzie introduces a second programme of interviews with white and coloured Americans
Robert McKenzie recently spent some time in the Southern States of the U.S.A., making a special investigation of the race issue there since the Supreme Court ruling of 1954, by which it was declared unconstitutional for public authorities to provide separate schools for white and coloured children.
In October Robert McKenzie presented a programme putting this issue in its general setting. In this second programme he illustrates and discusses the successes and failures in carrying out the ruling which he found in the border states between the north and the south.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
