: Science in the 'Seventies

A recorded synopsis of a paper read to The Physical Society in London earlier in the day by Sir Ambrose Fleming, F.R.S.
When the Physical Society was founded sixty-four years ago it received its first address from a young scientist by the name of Fleming.
This evening Sir Ambrose Fleming, inventor of the thermionic valve and one of the pioneers of radio, will once more address that body. Sir Alan Ferguson, President of the Physical Society, and well-known broadcaster, will introduce Sir Ambrose, who will address the members on scientists of the 'seventies and scientists of today.
The speech will travel by post-office line to Broadcasting House, where it will be electrically recorded. The Recorded Programmes Department will then have the difficult task of cutting a sixty-minute speech to fifteen minutes, and making a consecutive whole of it.

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.
