★ 'The Great Exhibition of 1851' ELEANOR GRAHAM
The objects of the Great International Exhibition of 1851 were, in the words of the Prince Consort ' the promotion of all branches of human industry and the strengthening of the bonds of peace and friendship among the nations of the earth ', -an aim that may be taken to apply to all these great occasions.
In the course of the talk the Great
Exhibition will be compared with the New York World's Fair of today, and the broadcast will be illustrated by an imaginary commentary on the opening of the Exhibition, extracts from the speeches of Queen Victoria, the Prince Consort, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, and a dialogue between two workmen at the Exhibition's close.

: SWITZERLAND:

A Study of Unity in Diversity by William Rappard , Adolf Keller , Paul Ganz , and Sir Alfred Zimmern
1—' The Political Tradition '
William Rappard
Director of the Graduate Institute of International Studies
(From Geneva)
This is the first of a group of four talks all coming from Switzerland, in which distinguished Swiss broadcasters are going to tell listeners about this unique country. Switzerland has achieved unity through diversity. Four races are contained in its frontiers. It has three languages and two religions, yet there is no such thing as a discontented minority, and the country as a whole is a thriving example of contentment arrived at through understanding and intelligent co-operation.
William Rappard is one of Switzerland's leading political figures, and in his talk. he will outline the political circumstances that have made the Swiss people happy.
Further broadcasts will deal with the tradition of the churches and the tradition of Swiss culture. Sir Alfred Zimmern will sum up in the concluding talk.

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.
