: * THE MAN AND THE ATOM

Recollections of Niels Bohr ty R V. Jones
C.B., C.B.E., F.R.S.
Niels Bohr was first known in Denmark as a footballer, but when ho died five years ago he was one of the foremost figures of the heroic age of nuclear physics. Professor Jones speaks of his associations with Bohr after he was brought to this country from enemy-occupied Denmark in the bomb bay of a Mosquito, during which he was almost suffocated because he did not hear the command to turn on the oxygen— his head was too big to take the headphones.

: THE ORIGINS OF POLYPHONY

by A. L. Lloyd illustrated by field recordings
Produced by Douglas Cleverdon
It used to be said that polyphony was invented by west European monks in the ninth century. But modern research shows that medieval polyphony had its powerful forerunners, remote in time and space. Multi-part singing has been a worldwide phenomenon since prehistoric times. It flourishes among primitives and peasants from the Solomons to Sardinia, in many ingenious forms from the organum of Naga head-hunters to the astonishing counterpoint of Caucasian mountaineers.

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.
