New Ways with Leather by Kenneth Pankhurst D.SC.
, F.R.I.C. of the British Leather Manufacturers
Research Association
During the past decade new techniques have been applied to study the chemistry of a very old art-leather-making.
Tanning, it is now believed, is brought about by cross-linking ' the long, natural macromolecules of the skin in much the same way as a shaky wall can be' strengthened by the S-shaped plates seen on old buildings. By using 'model' substances it has been possible to settle fairly accurately how it is done; and a better understanding of an ancient craft has resulted from a modern technique originating in the age-old observation that oil spreads on (troubled) waters.

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.
