: * IN LABOUR BRITAIN

Three talks by † Andrew Shonfield
Director of Studies Royal Institute of International Affairs
3: Planning and Incomes Policy
As a short-term instrument for regulating the economy the prices and incomes policy has so far been something less than a success, argues Mr. Shonfield. On the other hand, he says it is potentially one of the most powerful instruments of long-term policy for regulating the relationship between the State and private industry in a planned economy.
In this talk he suggests that the Labour Government is now faced with some sharp choices about the way in which it henceforth uses this and the other tools of planning.

Part 2

: THE WELSH POETIC TRADITION

Three illustrated talks by ANTHONY CONRAN based on his translations of poems from Welsh
Narrator, DYFNALLT MORGAN
2: Independence
The key to the poetry described and read in this programme is the Welsh political renaissance which began in the early twelfth century with Gruffydd ap Cynan. The court poetry that he and his successors fostered is, metrically. some of the most intricate in the world.
Poems read by JOHN DARRAN JOHN DANBY , and PHILIP MADOC
Produced by MEIRION EDWARDS
The Classic Period: March 10 followed by an interlude at 10.50

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.
