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.
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.
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.
