A view of world history in 13 parts by John Roberts. 12: The Decline of the West In the first half of this century, a stable world of optimism, sanity and progress seemed to go mad. Men lost faith in the civilisation of the West.
Its old heartland - Europe - was wracked by civil wars (1914-18,1939-45) and leadership passed to America.
Russia became separated from it and hostile. Economic failure, the rolling up of colonial empires, fragmentation in the arts and new discoveries in science and in the new science of the mind - psychology - all added to the unease. And in the East, Japan - first militarily, then economically - became a superpower.
But is the day of the West really done?

A profile of one of the century's greatest musicians. Adrian Cedric Boult , founder-conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, was born 100 years ago today. Behind the public image of this great champion of British music as 'an English gentleman with a Colonel Blimp moustache' lies a more complex figure: an acknowledged master of conducting technique and a crusader for new music who believed it was immoral to parade his emotions before the public. The programme features rare archive film including excerpts from Elgar's Introduction and Allegro for Strings (1963) and the BBC Symphony Orchestra playing Beethoven's Fifth Symphony in 1935.

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.

50s, you can navigate by issue.
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
