: Tuesday Term

7.30 Mathematics '64: 14: Closed Shop
A series of twenty programmes reflecting new trends in mathematics and in the teaching of mathematics. Out of the idea of a Vector Space is extracted the idea of a Group, the simplest and perhaps the most fundamental structure in mathematics.
Presented by Geoffrey Matthews.

8.0 Basis for Decision: The Use of Operational Research: 2: Playing It Through
A series of three programmes on how scientific method can be used to solve problems of management. Some problems are so complex that they can only be solved by building a detailed model of the situation and experimenting with it.
Presented by Professor P. Rivett.

8.45 Studying the Social Sciences: 5: States and Governments
A series of six programmes prepared in association with the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Political Science is the oldest of the social sciences. Since before the days of ancient Greece, men have been concerned with justice, citizenship, and ways of running the state.
Among those taking part: R.H. Pear, William Pickles, Maurice Cranston, Professor L.B. Schapiro, Dr. F.S. Northedge
Introduced by Dr. Alan Little.

9.15 One Hundred Years of Marxism: 8: The Appeal of Communism

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.
