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 a group of laymen about the structure of the atom, the fusion process, the fission process, and the production and use of nuclear energy.
3-The Fission Process
Diagram of an atomic power plant
The essence of the process is that when a nucleus of uranium 235 is split by a neutron, energy is released, and at the same time it emits roughly two more neutrons which in turn split two more nuclei, emitting four neutrons to split four more nuclei, and so on; this is called the chain reaction.
Professor Powell begins with a recapitulation of the fusion process-the expected source of power for the rest of time-and goes on to explain and discuss the fission process-the source of power for the immediate future.

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.

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.

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.
