: The Reith Lectures Change and Industrial Society

by Dr Donald Schon
A second hearing of the 1970 series, followed by questions from an invited audience
1: The Loss of the Stable State
One way of describing the era in which we live, says Dr Schon. is that it is characterised by a loss of the stable state: there is no organisation or institution that feels adequate to the challenges which face it. And. since persons get their own stability from the different social systems in which they have their roles. the stable state for persons is being eroded too.
Dr Schon. philosopher by training, and author of The Displacement of Concepts, is now President of a non-profit-making consultancy firm in Cambridge. Massachusetts, the Organisation for Social and Technical Innovation, and a member of the us Commission On the Year 2000.

by JOHN ADAMS Head of English Department, Sevenoaks School
Since F. R. Leavis and Denys Thompson published Culture and Environment in 1933, it has gradually come to be accepted that English teaching must concern itself with the Media and the commercial scene. But how? Mr Adams holds that value judgments cannot be divorced from awareness of the social pressures which shape the media, and that children need to discover through practice how a medium moutds its message,

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.
