A weekly programme about work in the world of science
Britain in Brussels
At the Brussels Exhibition, in the Court-yard of Invention, British contributions to science and technology since the Industrial Revolution are represented by a vast array of exhibits of British ' firsts.' These range from open-hearth furnaces and power looms to stick-on rubber soles and propelling pencils. Another display deals with the award of Nobel Prizes to British scientists-a series of some thirty major discoveries that have shaped the world of today.
C. L. Boltz who was at the opening of the Exhibition yesterday, gives his first impressions of British science in Brussels
Roy Hay reports from the 15th International Horticultural Congress now in session in Nice
He introduces comments on some of the subjects discussed by horticulturists who have gathered together from all over the world.

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.
