TWO THOUSAND DEGREES
UNDER THE MICROSCOPE by J. H. Welch of the Building Research Station
Cement, glass, bricks, steel. They are all made at high temperatures. But how can we find out exactly what is happening at 2000° Centigrade? Whip
- ping out samples and cooling them rapidly is one way, but it is now possible to observe high-temperature changes directly in the high-temperature microscope. The speaker describes the instrument and some of the things that can be done with it.
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.
