: GENETIC ENGINEERING

A series of eight talks 8: Elective Selection by Professor T.M. SONNEBORM University of Indiana
The possibilities suggested by the application of genetics to man seem, at the moment, to be almost frightening. Professor Sonneborn suggests that this is simply due to their novelty. He maintains that we will accept them as and when they become freely available just as we have come to accept contraception and therapeutic abortion as part of our social behaviour.

: THEATRICAL BALANCE OF PAYMENTS

Giles Playfair enquires into the economics of the commercial theatre and talks to
Emile Littler , Hugh Beaumont Michael Denison , Daniel Massey Peter Bridge , and Peter Donald Currently half the theatres in London are playing to good houses but claim they are only making small profits because costs are so high. The other theatres are not even attracting large enough audiences to cover their costs. Outside London the commercial theatre is in its death throes; the leading commercial management intends to dispose of all Its theatres In the next three years. In these circumstances how long can the commercial theatre survive even in London? Is the quality of commercial management adequate in the face of growing competition from the subsidised theatre as well as television and films?

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.
