: THE DITCH AND THE TOWER

† LAURENCE KITCHIN on Yeatf
Mr. Kitchin argues that the enduring relevance of Yeats's poetry depends on his reconciliation of the grossness of experience with the glamour of art. He sees Yeats as both entertainer and realist, aware of life as a ' blind man's ditch ' and at the same time preoccupied with its splendour and mystery as symbolised by the tower, in particular, the tower he lived in himself in Ballylee.

: ECONOMISTS AT LARGE

3: Exploring 1970
† RICHARD STONE
P. D. Leake Professor of Finance and Accounting, Cambridge talks to STEPHEN ARIS of the Sunday Times about the latest book in his series: A Programme for Growth. This reports the first results from the mathematical model of the British economy which he and his colleagues at Cambridge have been constructing since 1960. The model makes it possible to measure the implications of sustained economic growth up to 1970 for particular industries in terms of output, manpower, and capital formation.

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.

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

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.
