by Magnus Pyke Ph.D., F.R.S.E.
It is only twelve years since the first International Congress of Biochemistry met, but such has been the expansion of their science that at the Fourth Congress, held in Vienna recently, twenty-four lecture halls had to be used simultaneously for a week to accommodate the 1,700 lecturers. Dr. Pyke attended the Congress and in this talk he reflects on the great age of biochemistry in which we are living and on the value of such congresses in promoting international understanding.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
