: FRANCE NOW

A series of six conversations between
RAYMOND ARON
Professor of Sociology at the Sorbonne and FRANÇOlS DUCHENE formerly Paris Correspondent of The Economist
1: From the Fourth to the Fifth Republic
To say that France is changing has become a cliché. Twenty years ago her economy, which had remained largely agricultural, had been stripped bare by the Germans. Today, industrialisation is provoking a revolution in her behaviour and habits. She is one of the youngest countries in Europe. She has shared in the European economic miracle of the fifties. She has her own atomic bomb, her CaraveUe jets. her television colour system. The historic monuments of Paris have been washed clean. The up-and-coming French businessman eats in self-service restaurants. One French-man in five has his own car. The French leadership of the haute couture is challenged.
2: The French Economic Miracle, November 7

sung by ALAN JONES (baritone)
ROBERT SPENCER (lute)
Though you are young When to her lute
It fell on a summer's day The cypress curtain Follow your saint
Fair, if you expect admiring Author of light
Come, you pretty false-eyed wanton
Shall I come, sweet love
There is a garden in her face

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.
