New Ways with Dyes by Peter Sykes , Ph.D.
Only since the first synthetic dyestuff was produced in 1856 has the production of colours been carried out scientifically. Fastness to light and to washing are perhaps the most desirable qualities in a dyestuff, but it is in fact extremely difficult to bind a dye to a fabric sufficiently tightly to prevent at least some of it being washed off. Recently, however, a new range of dyestuffs has been produced: these actually combine chemically with the fabric, becoming, in effect, an intrinsic part of it. How this has been done is the subject of Dr. Sykes's talk.

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.
