A critical study by JAMES AITCHISON of themes which recur in Muir's poetry and which haunted him throughout his career
Then shut your eyes and see, Sleep on and do not wake
Till there is movement in the lake,
And the club-headed water-serpents break
In emerald lightnings through the slime,
Making a mark on time. Producer STEWART CONN

: Issues of Our Time

A monthly series of discussion programmes
1: New Pressures on CapitalismLabour groups with strong bargaining power are perhaps only one of a number of organised interest groups waiting to challenge the assumptions on which the prosperity of western societies has depended for the last quarter of a century. At the same time, doubts about our ability to deal with new international forces, like the multi-national company, and about the capacity of current technology to cope with new constraints on raw materials for industry, suggest the need for a reassessment of the future of the capitalist system.
Robert Heilbroner , Professor of Economics. New School of Social Research, New York
Aubrey Jones, Adviser to the Nigerian Government on governmental and economic problems and formerly chairman of the National Board for Prices and Incomes (1965-70) and in the chair

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.
