: ECONOMISTS AT LARGE

Who cares about capitalists now?
† by THOMAS WILSON
Professor of Political Economy, University of Glasgow
Andrew Shonfield's new book Modern Capitalism . sets out to show how far capitalism has come since the second world war in the developed countries of the West. Professor Wilson selects one major theme from the book-the importance in a planned economy not of who owns capital but of who controls it and how they control it-and offers some further ideas of his own.

: THE THIRTIES IN BRITAIN

The Making of a Logical Positivist by A. J. Ayer
Wykeham Professor of Logic in the University of Oxford
In 1936. Lanouaoe, Truth, and Logic shook the British philosophical scene with a considerable explosion: its iconoclasm, passion, and confidence won for its doctrine of logical positivism attention far outside the ranks of professional philosophers alone.
In this talk its author re-creates his experience at the centre of the stormy debate over Logical Positivism, and offers an assessment of what the movement achieved.

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.
