Act 2

: The Reith Lectures Change and Industrial society

by Dr Donald Schon followed by questions from an invited audience. A second hearing of the 1970 series
6: What can we know about Social Change'
In the present situation, Dr Schon argues, we must be willing to regard every theory that we develop as a perspective that can shift at the same time as we are taking it as a basis for action; to use ourselves as informational instruments, be attentive to our own feelings as sources of data. In this attitude, he suggests, lies the germ of an ethic for knowing.

Act 3

: Volpone

by BEN JONSON adapted for radio by MARTIN JENKINS with Clive Revill
Paul Daneman , Max Adrian
Volpone. childless, rich, feigns sick, despairs.
Offers his state to hopes of several heirs.
Lies languishing: his parasite receives
Presents of all, assures. deludes; then weaves
Other cross plots, which ope themselves, are loid.
New tricks for safety are sought; they thrive when bold, Each tempts the other again, and all are sold.
The music and the songs for this production composed by DEREK OLDFIELD
Produced by MARTIN JENKINS
(Paul Daneman is in ' Don'Start Without Me' at the Garrick Theatre, London)

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
