: NEW IDEAS IN SECONDARY EDUCATION

Eight programmes for teachers and parents on the changing scene in secondary schools
Introduced by DR. F. HILLIARD
4: Teaching in the Flexible School
There has been a great deal of discussion amongst educationists and head teachers about how to make the traditional school organisation more flexible. How can * streaming ' of children be abolished? How can the old divisions between subjects like History and Geography, Science and Maths be broken down? But the most vital question for most serving teachers is generally left unasked and unanswered. What is it like to be a teacher who is trained and practised in traditional school attitudes. and who is suddenly faced with a revolution in classroom practice imposed from above?
An ex-grammar school teacher who became head of the geography department of a ' flexible ' comprehensive school, describes how he came successfully to modify his entire teaching methods

: THE CELTS

A series of eight broadcasts
Introduced by DR. ANNE Ross
4: Pagan Celtic Religion
A far-flung people, the Celts encountered a variety of cultural influences. There is nevertheless a sufficient unity in their cult practices and imagery to allow us to speak of pagan Celtic religion, and to detect an underlying universality in their beliefs. The Celts evolved a splendid art. Using the sacred water birds and sun symbols of Bronze Age Europe, together with Persian and Scythian animal art and classical plant forms, they turned them into a unique and pleasing style. This was to develop a distinctive quality in the British Isles, and to emerge again after the collapse of the Roman Empire. to become the familiar art of early Christian metalwork and manuscript.

The speaker's viewpoint is that of an analytical psychiatrist. Commitment-or commitedness-is a crucial stage in the patient's' recovery of ' wholeness.' How commitment ' works ' in this way is less difficult to describe than to explain.

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.
