7.15 What Is Programmed Learning?: 2: Linear Programmes
A series of five programmes specially prepared for teachers.

Last week's broadcast ended with a short, specially written 'linear programme'. Today's broadcast shows the way in which the subject matter was analysed, and the techniques used to write the 'frames'. After this broadcast, you are invited to write the next set of 'frames' for yourself.
Written and presented by George Leith, Department of Education, University of Birmingham.

7.45 The Tools of Science: 2: X-ray Diffraction
A series of six programmes.
Introduced by Professor Donald Rogers of Imperial College.

The interpretation of X-ray diffraction patterns has led to very important discoveries about the structure of molecules. In tonight's programme Professor Rogers explains the principles of X-ray diffraction and shows how patterns may be used to obtain what is virtually a 'photograph' of molecules in a crystal.

8.15 Fothergale Co. Ltd.: 2: Consumer Research
A second series of eight programmes illustrating how modern economic ideas and techniques are applied in the management of a small but expanding firm.

Rumours of staff changes are in the air as Fothergales consider branching out into the manufacture of other disposable garments.

Devised and introduced by Ronald Brech.

8.55 Freedom-Now: 2: France-De Gaulle's Republic
Eight programmes examining the way in which people in some European countries control, or are controlled by, their Governments.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
