Talk By: Fr. Illtud Evans


by C. F. Powell , F.R.S.
In this series of four programmes C. F. Powell, Professor of Physics in the University of Bristol, talks to four laymen about the structure of the atom, the fission process, the fusion process, and the production and use of nuclear energy.
I-The Structure of the Atom
If a hydrogen atom were as big as the dome of the Royal Albert Hall its nucleus, suspended at the centre, would be as big as a seed pearl and would weigh 60,000 tons. The electron, also the size of a seed pearl, would be circling the periphery of the dome and would weigh thirty tons. With this image of the simplest atom in mind to illustrate the scale and the density of the parts, Professor Powell explains the structure of atoms and the forces involved in holding them together.

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.
