: NEW IDEAS IN SECONDARY EDUCATION

Eight programmes for teachers and parents on the changing scene in secondary schools
Introduced by DR. F. HILLIARD
1: The Newsom Report
In August 1963 the Ministry of Education published the report of a Committee set up ' to consider the educaton between the ages of 13 and 16 of pupils of average or less than average ability.' The report was called ' Half Our Future ' and the Chairman of the Committee was Sir John Newsom. The report found a great deal wrong with much of our secondary school teaching. The attitude to the schools of many pupils was put by one youngster who said,when asked for an opinion on the new school buildings. 'It could all be marble, sir, but it would still be a bloody school.'
SIR JOHN NEWSOM and CHARITY JAMES of Goldsmiths' College, London University discuss the impact of the report on schools, and whether its recommendations go far enough to meet many of our severe educational problems

: SECULAR CHRISTIANITY

6: Transcendence by AUSTIN FARRER, Warden of Keble College, Oxford
' Anti - transcendentalism.' by degrees, has been a recurrent theme in this series of broadcasts. God, we are told. is dead: that is. He is totally historicized. Dr. Farrer argues that those who tell us this are either atheists or do not really mean what they appear to say.

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.
