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

A series of six programmes
3: The 1930s: the collapse of collective security by DR. ROGER MORGAN of the University of Sussex
Several explanations have been given of the failure of the League of Nations to make collective security work. Does the experience of the 1930s suggest that collective security as conceived by the makers of the League is completely Utopian and, if not, what are the conditions under which it might succeed?

: THE REITH LECTURES 1967

A Runaway World? by Edmund Leach Provost of King's College, Cambridge and University Reader in Social Anthropology
3: Ourselves and Others
Our feeling that we stand opposed to nature and also to the products of our own technology is part of a more fundamental antagonism-the split which separates ' us ' from the ' others.' Whether the ' others ' be the mysterious ' they' of government, or ' bloody foreigners.' or ' these awful youngsters,' or the despised old, they are symptoms of a fragmented way of living which generates loneliness. anxiety, and violence.
This talk will be printed In ' The Listener ' dated November 30
Sunday's broadcast (Radio 4)
Men and Morality: December 3 (Radio 4); December 5 (Third)

: PORTRAIT OF AN ACTOR

Recollections of Robert Farquharson by DAME SYBIL THORNDIKE
SIR LEWIS CASSON
SIR JOHN GIELGUD
SIR DONALD WOLFIT
VIVIENNE CHATTERTON
CARLETON HOBBS and DAVID PEEL
Produced by DOUGLAS CLEVERDON
Robert Farquharson , who died last year at an age unknown to his friends, played the part of Herod in the first English production of Oscar Wilde's Salome in 1905. Max Beerbohm found his performance especially laudable 'in that he never let his minute expression of Herod's self in all its hideousness interfere with his musical delivery of the elaborate cadences.'
His wit, usually deflating, sometimes venomous, but always apposite, was legendary; with it he combined considerable learning and unexpected kindness to old ladies.

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.
