5-' Jennings and the Unique Antique '
Produced by David Davis
Famous characters in school stories, like Tom Brown of Rugby and J. C. T. Jennings of Linbury Court School, are what is called' sympathetic,' that is to say readers and listeners like them. Jennings's principal claims to popularity hitherto have been the bishes and priority hoo-hahs he makes and gets into; but in this play another side to his character is revealed, an unexpected cleverness which can't be called cunning, and a by no means unsuccessful attempt to do the right thing.....

: SCIENCE SURVEY

A weekly programme about work in the world of science
Life before birth
The second of three talks on the biology of development by D. R. Newth, Ph.D . of University College, London
Dr. Newth discusses the problem: embryological research shows that young organisms ire so organised that their various parts may be interchangeable-that they are not determined from the outset to fulfil the role they normally do-but cytogenetics demands that the course of development should, in one sense, be ' determined ' at fertilisation. How can these views be reconciled?

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.
