: This Was News: Death on the Road

Kenneth Adam
Towards the end of October, 1935, the present King, as Prince of Wales, made a striking appeal for more care on the roads, and for a more intensive safety campaign. In one way or another, he has found an echo almost every day since.
The idea behind this talk is to tell the story of new devices for safety on the road, and to compare other nations' efforts, particularly those of America, to solve a world problem.
Kenneth Adam, who was on the staff of the BBC before joining The Star, is to try and paint a picture of the change in appearance in roads, due to modern traffic needs, and he will discuss further changes that are likely.

: Scientists at Work

Detecting the Invisible
How some plant diseases are investigated
KENNETH SMITH
This talk explains the investigations constantly being made by scientists into plant diseases given by mysterious things called viruses (not necessarily living organisms), so small that no pore of a filter can hold them back, and the lens of no microscope has yet been made that can magnify them enough to show them to the naked eye.
Dr. Kenneth Smith , who works at the Potato Virus Research Station, School of Agriculture, Cambridge, will describe how certain viruses are spread about by the sap of infected plants, others by carriers such as green-fly, others through the sludge in the bottom of tanks, others by contact with the human hand.
What a virus is, is not yet known.
It is being combated-for instance, by the English grower who buys his potato seed in Scotland where the virus is scarcer. The chemist, the physicist, the botanist, and the entomologist are all co-operating in the study of viruses and virus diseases in the interests of us all.

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.
