: WEAPONS FOR COLD WAR TWO

by ELIZABETH YOUNG
The United States government has now decided on deployment of an anti-ballistic missile system directed specifically against a possible Chinese attack. The Chinese interpret this as the beginning of an anti-Chinese military alliance between the United States and the Soviet Union, which has already started to deploy an A.B.M. system of its own.
Mrs. Young, author of Nations and Nuclear Weapons, discusses some of the far-reaching implications of these and other recent developments in the field of arms control.

Professor of Mathematical Biology Mental Health Research Institute University of Michigan
The first Galilean language revolution was the invention of a mathematical language to describe adequately the process of change. The gap between our capacities for technological and social control suggests we need to engineer a new Galilean language revolution.

Dozens of composers have written operas on the Orpheus myth. Two of them, Monteverdi and Gluck, managed to change operatic history in the process. In 1776, the Venetian Bertoni had to provide an opera for a company which included the famous castrato Guadagni, Gluck's original Orfeo. In homage to Gluck, Bertoni decided to re-set the same libretto that the master had used in 1762. The result was a short opera whose music clothed Calzabigi's sparing text with the honeyed Italian elegance that Haydn and Mozart loved so well. Haydn, in fact, performed Bertoni's version at Esterhaz in preference to
Gluck's.

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.
