7.30 How and Why?: 6: Demonstrations on Energy
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.

Using the unifying concept of energy this programme shows ways in which teacher-demonstrations can be used creatively.

8.0 Wealth of a Nation: 6: S.O.S. for 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: Paul Streeten, Fellow and Tutor in Economics at Balliol College, Oxford, William Clark, Director, Overseas Development Institute

8.30 Research Report: 6: Hypersonic Flight
Eleven programmes looking into current research on the frontiers of science.

The Concord will fly at more than twice the speed of sound. But after Concord another generation of hypersonic aircraft, faster still, will result from today's research in aerodynamics and propulsion technology. If cruising speeds are to rise to Mach 5 and 6 and 7 entirely new problems await solution by airframe and engine designers-working together more closely than ever before.

9.0 Age of Adjustment: 1: The Great Divide
Six programmes on British foreign policies from 1945 to the present day.
Introduced by Peter Calvocoressi, Member of the Council of the Royal Institute of International Affairs.

How was it that East-West hostility grew up so rapidly after the war? What was British policy in the first years of the Cold War? And what was Britain's role to be in the new world situation?

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.
