: 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.
Second broadcast
Barry Supple on the Merchants in early seventeenth-century England: Friday at 7.0 p.m.

: * CATHOLICISM AND COMMUNICATION

by ANTHONY SPENCER
Director,
Pastoral Research Centre
The Roman Catholic Church can be viewed, like many other organisations, as a communication system; indeed, the concept of ' the word ' is central in shaping its structure. Anthony Spencer considers, from a sociological standpoint, the role played by communication problems in the adaptation crisis which the Church is now grappling with.

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.
