: THE DEBATE ABOUT FIGHTS

by MICHAEL HOWARD
Professor of War Studies in the University of London
Conflict research is a rapidly srowing discipline in America and Scandinavia, and has recently begun to gather momentum in this country (where it was first pioneered). Is it an important development in the study of international relations, or merely a passing inteHectual fashion, or a well-meant but misguided attempt to apply scientific techniques in areas where they are inappropriate?

: COMTE AND THE POSITIVIST RESPONSE

by W M. SIMON
Professor of History at the University of Keele
Auguste Comte, with his domestic eccentricities and his do-it-yourself ' religion of humanity. is a ready target for those who find philosophers figures of fun. Yet his positivist philosophy was a remarkably interesting response to the unprecedented problems set by the Europe which followed the Frencn Revolution.

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.
