: GULLIVER'S LAWS

by Professor Philip Morrison
The Royal Institution, London Annual Christmas Lectures to Young People
LECTURE 4: Lilliput and Brobdingnag since the Industrial Revolution
The lands Gulliver visited were technologically undeveloped. He saw no steam engine and no gunpowder. What would our machinery have been like had we humans been the size of the men of Gulliver's voyages? Brobdingnag would be a peaceful land with huge but impractical guns. On the other hand, Lilliput was horribly affected by the introduction of gunpowder.
Presented for television by Alan Sleath
Recorded this afternoon at the Royal Institution
Lecture 5: Tuesday at 6.0 p.m.

: RUGBY SPECIAL

Introduced by Cliff Morgan
Today's match:
BRIDGEND v. NEWPORT
Gilbert Bennett reports from the Brewery Field, Bridgend
Directed by DEWI GRIFFITHS
Series producer, ALAN MOUNCER
One of the major topics of Rugby Union football discussions in Britain at the moment is the introduction of some form of competitive league system of matches. The top sixteen Welsh clubs have in fact been taking part in an ' unofficial ' championship for many years, and a club's position on that table has become a matter of great importance.
Both Bridgend and Newport have won this unofficial championship title in recent seasons, and the standard of rugby in both clubs is as high now as at any time in their individual histories. Both clubs have been playing traditionally hard Welsh forward rugby throughout the first half of the season, and at the same time emulating the mighty Sixth. All Blacks who capitalised on intensive forward domination with some attacking back play at every opportunity. Today's match is undoubtedly one of the most interesting fixtures in the country.

: I LOVE THIS DIRTY TOWN

A personal plea for the City
Another ten years of ' civic re-development' and some of us think it will be too late to save anything worthwhile of our most important cities and towns, and we shall therefore be stuck with these mistakes to the end of this century, at least.
It's getting late to ask ourselves how we might like to live in cities. This is a very personal film which does ask: do we want cities monumental, cities beautiful, cities arterial ... or cities liveable?
We're tearing the heart out of cities on a massive scale. The Victorians went through a building spree and turned their society upside-down. They, at least, knew they were doing it for money. We're spending the money knowing, almost, that the result will be nil, probably nil plus urban death.

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.
