Man and the Oceans by N. B. Marshall of the British Museum (Natural History)
It sounds almost facetious to speak about the future of the Oceans, but what is happening under by far the greater part of the earth's surface cannot but be of importance to the future of mankind. Two hundred thousand species inhabit the seas-can this fertility be turned to man's advantage? Is it safe to use the oceans as dumping grounds for radioactive waste? Are the oceans in some way connected with the climatic changes that are becoming manifest, particularly in eastern North America and northern Europe?

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.
