An investigation of China's grievances against the Soviet Union by GEOFFREY STERN
Lecturer in International Relations, London School of Economics
The quarrel between China and Russia is ostensibly about ideology, but manifestly about power. and China's memory of three centuries of humiliation at the hands of the Russians adds to its intensity. Geoffrey Stern traces the extent of this humiliation and discusses some of its implications for present developments in the Sino-Soviet dispute.

: * LIFE IN THE OLD GODS YET

Reflections on Philip Rieff 's
The Triumph of the Therapeutic by JOHN WREN-LEWIS
Philip Rieff , Professor of Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania. is editor of the Collected Works of Siegmund Freud and a professed Freudian. He believes that modern culture is committed to the therapeutic effort, to well-being for its own sake, after the failure of demand-systems like Communism and Christianity. John Wren-Lewis thinks Rieff goes some way beyond Freud-but still not far enough.

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.
