: The Judicial Campaign: An American Mode of Politics

J. R. Pole, Reader in American History and Government at the University of Cambridge, and Vice-Master of Churchill College, examines the judicial campaign as an American way of fighting issues through the courts instead of using elections and legislatures to attain political aims. The campaign in the courts in turn becomes an appeal to public opinion with the aim of influencing the judge's decision. Developed almost exclusively in the United States, it remains as yet unknown in this country. But that state of innocence, suggests Dr Pole, could be about to change. followed by an interlude

: Functional Analysis

by Hans Keller
Mozart's String Quintet, in G minor (K 516)
DARTINGTON STRING QUARTET with BRIAN HAWKINS (viola)
Hans Keller 's wordless method of analysis is designed to show how contrasting themes, rhythms, harmonies and movements hang together: the unity of all contrasts is thrown into relief by way of an analytic score that is linked with the complete movements of the work.
Part 1: Analytic introduction - first movement - analytic interlude - minuet - analytic postlude
Part II: Analytic prelude-slow movement - analytic interlude -finale, interrupted (before the allegro) by a short analytic cadenza - analytic epilogue

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.
