and Line-up for Tuesday

: Tuesday Term

7.30 How and Why?: 5: The Kinetic Model
An enquiry into physics teaching today.
A series of fifteen programmes concerned with new ideas at the 11-16 age range.
Introduced by W. Ritchie.

Building up the idea of a scientific model in school physics.

8.0 Wealth of a Nation: 5: What Kind of Growth?
A series of eleven programmes which consider the economics of growth.

How can we prevent the million private dreams from becoming the public nightmare?
Presenting the programme are: Roger Opie, Fellow and Tutor in Economics at New College, Oxford; Geoffrey Stuttard, Tutor in Industrial Studies for London University.
with contributions from Joan Robinson, Colin Clark, Derrick Rigby Childs

8.30 Research Report: 5: The Dam Builders
Eleven programmes looking into current research on the frontiers of science.

The building of a big dam is usually a major national project, costing millions of pounds. It is also a major structural alteration in the valley in which the dam is sited. The large masses of water contained put new, heavy loads on the surrounding geological formations. The construction engineers use specialised research by means of accurate model tests to help solve some of their complex stressing problems.

9.0 Politics U.S.A.: 5: Democrats and Republicans
Five programmes on how the American political system works.
Introduced by Roderick MacLeish, Chief European Correspondent of the Westinghouse Broadcasting Company and Malcolm Shaw, Lecturer in Anglo-American Comparative Studies at Exeter University.

The organisation of the two major American parties, and their function within their country's system of government, are very different from those of the British parties. But, contrary to common British belief, there is a similar ideological distance between Democrats and Republicans as between the Conservative and Labour Parties.

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.
