: NAMES AND PLACES

Talk by Randolph Quirk , Ph.D.
Reader in English
In the University of Durham
Some names, like Newcastle or South-end-on-Sea are self-explanatory. Others are not so obvious; their present-day spelling may even be misleading. The recently published ' English Place-Name Elements' by Professor A. H. Smith shows that there is a lot in place-names for everyone: the serious historian, historical geographer, linguist, folklorist, local antiquarian or just the inquisitive bed-time reader.'

: SCIENCE AND MORALS

A discussion between
Father Laurence Bright , o.p.
J. B. S. Haldane. F.R.s.
Professor of Biometry.
University College, London
Stephen Toulmin
Professor of Philosophy in the University of Leeds
Is there any connection between science and morals? There do seem to be certain similarities between scientific thinking and moral thinking; but does the knowledge that natural science offers help us to make decisions about right and wrong? How far can the scientist contribute to the discovery of moral values? And assuming we once know what is right, can science help us to do it?
In discussing these and related topics, the speakers in this programme find some points of agreement between Christian and humanist; on others they remain fundamentally divided.

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.
