: THE REITH LECTURES 1967

A Runaway World? by Edmund Leach
Provost of King's College, Cambridge and University Reader in Social Anthropology
1: Men and Mature
The universe of tradition was tripartite. God created a fixed Nature as an orderly place for Man to live in. We now think of Nature as an evolving process but Man Is still a creature apart, an impotent spectator. Science has now given Man a god-like power to tamper with the processes of evolution-to alter ' the course of Nature.' But instead of rejoicing we are full of fear: everything suddenly seems out of control.

: GHANA TAKES A NEW ROAD

by W. P. KIRKMAN
The National Liberation Council now ruling Ghana has two basic tasks. The first is to purse the body politic of elements associated with Nkrumah, and in this the N.L.C. has already seen a large measure of success. The other job is to lay the foundations for the future health of Ghanaian society. Mr. Kirkman considers the question of whether the N.L.C. will. as it has promised, hand over its power to civilian rule; if it does. Ghana will have provided Africa with an important precedent.

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.
