: An Age of Conflict ARMAMENT AND WAR IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

A series of six programmes
1: War in the modern world by ALASTAIR BUCHAN Director of the Institute for Strategic Studies
For the first forty years of (his century the danger of war was conceived largely in European terms. But in the last twenty-two years hardly a shot has been fired in Europe, while Africa, the Middle East. Asia, and the Caribbean have been the scene of growing conflict. Indeed, it is no longer possible to study war as a purely military phenomenon since guerrilla warfare has become so common. with readings by Michael HARBOUR
Produced by Adrian Johnson
Study notes are available: see p. 69

: * THE IMPACT OF ENGLAND ON THE INDIAN MIND

†by NIRAD C. CHAUDRURI
Parliamentary government and the civil service are usually regarded as the major contributions of the British Raj to Indian life. Nirad Chaudhuri , author of Autobiography of an Unknown Indian and The Continent of Circe and this year's winner of the Duff Cooper Memorial Prize, does not discount their importance. To him the chief beneficial influence came through ' the awareness of a new kind of life ' brought about by the prolonged exposure of Indian intellectuals to English language and literature.

: LITERATURE AND THE CITY

by RAYMOND WILLIAMS
Fellow of Jesus College. Cambridge and author of Culture and Society 1780-1950
In his first talk about the relationship between Literature and Rural Society. Mr. Williams argued against the concept of an ' organic society.' In this talk he takes the argument further: the simple, black-and-white contrast between city and country has involved, he claims. ' a misrepresentation of both kinds of life: the country has been tdealised, and the city extravagantly denounced.' He suggests that the conventional ways of treating city experience in literature may be as outdated as the cities themselves-which are ' essentially the products of nineteenth-century technology and communications.' And he traces the main responses to the city through modern English literature from Wordsworth to James Joyce , quoting from these and other major writers.

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.
