The Science of Materials
4: Fibres for Strength by ANTHONY Kelly , Ph.D.
University of Cambridge
Several speakers in this group of talks have referred to the fact that the strength of actual materials falls very far short of what would be expected from theory. How can scientists meet technological demands for stronger materials? Several lines of argument lead to the suggestion 'by the incorporation of fibres.' Plastic-bonded glass fibre is an example.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
