: National and Provincial: 5: Forty-Five Years of Regional Planning

A documentary on the Ruhr Regional Planning Authority in West Germany by Richard Hooper using material collected specially in Essen. The Regional Authority was founded in 1920 by the (equivalent of) county boroughs and county councils in the Ruhr. The significance for us in the United Kingdom Is that the Ruhr Authority has executive powers over roads, railways, and green spaces of regional importance. The problems of the Ruhr are comparable to those of our own underdeveloped regions: a poor environment, left over from the Industrial Revolution; the decline of coal and the need to attract growth industries; loss in population.

: TWO FACES OF AMERICAN HISTORY

2: Lincoln and the American Commitment tby J.R.POLE,
Fellow of Churchill College and Reader in American History and Government at the University of Cambridge
Lincoln's monumental head looks at us with the innovating face of American history. American democracy was to him an adventure of proving the truths proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence. The American Revolution and Constitution had given an entirely new credibility to the eighteenth century belief in man's power to shape his history rationally. By the 1850s that commitment to rationality was being fundamentally challenged. Lincoln's genius grasped where and how the situation must be laid hold of.

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.
