: NATIONAL AND PROVINCIAL

A series of seven programmes on regional development in the United Kingdom
1: South East v. The Rest
1 Regional development' sounds lather off-putting. Yet it will affect almost everyone living in the United Kingdom in the next decades. It will affect them directly-in terms of where they live, what jobs they do, how much they earn. Of fifty slum black spots forty-five are in the North. The mean income of employed people in Armagh, Northern Ireland, is £524 compared with £1,158 in the City of London. Is this regional imbalance good for the nation? If not. what sort of measures are required to spread prosperity and employment more evenly?
These basic questions are investigated by ANDREW ROBERTSON ,
Editor of The Manager and Roy HODSON , of The Times
Produced by Richard Hooper
Second broadcast

: SOME SOURCES OF ROMANTICISM

by Sir Isaiah Berlin
Last year Professor Berlin gave six lectures in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, sponsored by the Bollingen Foundation, and they were recorded for Third Programme at the time
Sir Isaiah demonstrates that the advent of Romanticism was the first moment in the history of the West when ' there was a kind of tyranny of Art over Life.' He demonstrates further that the interest of Romanticism is not simply a historical one: that a great many concepts of the present day-nationalism, existentialism, democracy, totalitarianism — are still affected by Romanticism.
2: The First Attack on Enlightenment
The True Fathers of Romanticism: August 23

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.
