A weekly programme about work in the world of science
The Insect Resistance Problem by Peter Winteringham , F.R.I.C. of the Pest Infestation Laboratory, Slough
Insects are the most damaging of our biological rivals. A victory over them, which at one time seemed to be almost within our grasp, is not to be won lightly because of the way in which many insects have staged a come-back by developing marked resistance to established synthetic insecticides.
This resistance, developed in the past ten years, is today the most challenging problem facing the insect researcher. The speaker discusses its implications and what is being done to overcome it.

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.
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.
