by RICHARD HARRIS Asia specialist, The Times
The concept of Asia now only confuses and Pan-Asianism has lost all its impetus within Asia, argues Mr. Harris. He uses the experience of his own travels in the area to suggest the emergence of regional affiliations and examines some of the consequences.

6: The Summing Up The concluding talk by Robert BLAKE
Student of Christ Church, Oxford
This series or six talks on the various attempts to end hostilities in the First World War. by negotiation, have dealt with the secret Anglo-Turkish negotiation of 1915, the frustrated attempts of Wood-row Wilson to act as world-mediator, the anachronistic Franco-Austrian negotiation undertaken by Prince Sixtus of Bourbon Parma with the last Austrian Emperor, the forlorn appeal of Lord Lansdowne in 1917 and the dictated Treaty of Brest Litovsk, the only separate negotiation which did in fact terminate hostilities in a wide area. In this last talk, the general editor of the series. Robert Blake , draws conclusions from this survey.
These talks are being printed in ' The Listener '

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.
