: THE ENGLISH REVOLUTION

Social Conflict in early Stuart England
Eight lectures given by PETER LASLETT. Fellow of Trinity College. Cambridge at the University of Warwick
7: Crisis and Social Change
' It's my considered view.' says Mr. Laslett. ' that there was no English Revolution, if that phrase is taken to imply that English social structure underwent a crisis during the seventeenth century which led to a radical alteration in the distribution of power, wealth, and status within it.'
Mr. Laslett discusses what sort of changes would lead to such an overall transformation of society, and compares these changes with the reasons usually given to explain why The English Revolution occurred.
Eric Ives on Social Change and the Law: Friday, 7.0 p.m.

: TO REDUCE AND TO LOCATE

by HUMPHREY PALMER
Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy. University College of South Wales, Cardiff
1: The reduction game
Reduction and location are two important but quite different moves in philosophical reasoning. What are they meant to do; and what happens when they get mixed up? Mr. Palmer takes by way of illustration the question: Is the Bishop of Woolwich an atheist?
Second talk, Putting theology in its place: March 8

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.
