: A BUCHANAN APPROACH TO THE REGIONS

by DEREK RIGBY CHILDS
Town planning consultant
There are essentially two schools of thought on regional planning: one in favour of accepting the effects of urban drift in Britain on a strategic scale; the other in favour of ' counterdrift,' radical measures to establish a sound balance between north and south. Derek Rigby Childs is the begetter of the counterdrift theory which he first published three years ago in the Architects' Journal. He outlines a possible anatomy for the Government's proposed economic regions.

: REPRODUCING PIANOS

During the first three decades of this century reproducing pianos could be bought which enabled the owner to hear the playing of famous pianists in his own home. Vast numbers of piano rolls made by every pianist of note still exist and some have been transcribed to tape for the BBC Archives.
Denys Gueroult explains the systems under which the rolls were made and the authenticity of the reproduction obtained.

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

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
