: SCIENCE SURVEY

The Problem of Vibration by R. E. D. Bishop of the Department of Engineering
University of Cambridge
Vibration is a source of great worry to engineers, whether it is in a fluttering aircraft or in a metal chimney swaying in the wind. In some fields problems of vibration are actually holding up progress, but even generally they are so serious that the engineer must try to design against them rather than wait for trouble and then attempt to cure it.
The speaker reviews some aspects of this important engineering topic.

: A FAIR MONTH'S PAY

Andrew Shonfield chairs a discussion between
Barbara Wootton and Harold Wincott on middle-class incomes
The doctors' pay claim draws attention once more to the problem of finding a satisfactory basis for determining professional incomes. How valid a criterion is the income pattern of previous years? Just what part do the laws of supply and demand play where the incomes of professional people and white-collar workers generally are concerned?

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.
