A monthly programme reflecting the current archaeological scene Clay Tobacco Pipes
The study of clay pipes is for different reasons important to archaeologists, historians, and sociologists. In this country the industry flourished for some 250 years and produced some interesting variants in type and design.

† Hothouse Children
An investigation by ALAN BLAIKLEY
Recently, a full-time school for child musicians was opened in London. Similar schools for budding actors and dancers already existed. Is it fair on a child to segregate him, perhaps at the age of six or seven, in such a school? What sort of general education does he get? How many children fulfil their parents' hopes or their own youthful promise?
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.
