and Line-up for Tuesday

: Tuesday Term

7.30 How and Why?: 7: Testing Testing
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.

What are examinations meant to find out and how? The answers will determine how we teach.
with E. J. Wenham and N. K. Turner.

8.0 Wealth of a Nation: 7: Planned Growth?
A series of eleven programmes which consider the economics of growth.

Would greater economic planning spur the British economy into faster growth? If so, what kind of planning?
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 Bareau, Editor of The Statist; Joan Robinson, Reader in Economics at Cambridge; Nita Watts

8.30 Research Report: 7: The Cartsberg Ridge
Eleven programmes looking into current research on the frontiers of science.

Under the world's oceans lie submarine mountain ranges thousands of miles in length. These strange mid-ocean ridges are associated with both earthquakes and volcanoes and interest in their significance is growing. A recent Cambridge expedition explored the northern section of a major ridge in the Indian Ocean.

9.0 Age of Adjustment: 2: Britain and Europe
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.

Britain has always felt separate from Europe in sentiment and interests. Despite post-war commitments to defend Western Europe, this feeling was not seriously shaken until Britain's application to join the Common Market in 1961. What reasons were advanced for the change of policy? Can we assess the political opportunities and/or the threats which the E.E.C. presents to Britain?
Also taking part: Leonard Beaton, Senior Research Associate, The Institute for Strategic Studies

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.
