: THE SMALLER TERRITORIES

by Sir Hilary Blood G.B.E. , K.C.M.G.
Addressing the first Imperial Conference in 1911, Mr. Asquith referred to the Empire in terms of 'a common trusteeship of the interests and fortunes of fellow subjects who have not yet attained, or perhaps in some cases may never attain, to the full stature of self government.'
Since then, Commonwealth development has been thought of almost exclusively in terms of the attainment of complete self-government, but recent proposals affecting the future of Malta and Singapore have focused attention again on the prospect for the territories which may never attain it.
Sir Hilary Blood suggests 'a necessary change in approach to the problems of the smaller territories, which is so long, and so obviously long overdue.'

: THE MARKET FOR AIRLINERS

A discussion between
Frits Besangon, Vice-President of K.L.M. (Royal Dutch Airlines)
Peter G. Masefield, Managing Director of Bristol Aircraft, Ltd.
and
A. H. Milward, O.B.E., Chief Executive of British European Airways
with Ivor Jones in the chair
Despite the continuing growth in air traffic it has been suggested that the airlines may have difficulty in filling the large new aircraft they have ordered, and that anyhow the airports cannot cope with such an expansion. The speakers discuss the numbers and types of aircraft that will be required in future, and consider in particular the prospects for British airliners in this extremely competitive market.

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.
