Computers and Computing
With the current growth of the personal computer industry estimated at 40 to 50 per cent per annum, computers are no longer remote monolithic machines. School children write their own programs. But If you're over school age, where do you start? What's the best type of machine to buy? How much are computers continuing to change? How does British computer technology compare with the rest of the world's? And what effects will computers have on our lives?
David Tebbutt, writer and director of a British software publishing company, and Martin Banks, journalist specialising in the personal computer industry join Sue MacGregor to answer your questions. Produced by the Woman's Hour Unit

Compiled by PATRICK POLLARD from The Traveller's
Conversational Handbook by MADAME DE GENLIS , first published in four languages in 1804
Madame de Genlls wrote it for those rich and reckless enough to go on the Grand Tour of Europe. But her Handbook is not simplyanancestorofthe modern tourist's phrase-book. She wrote dialogue to cover any eventuality in early 19th-century travel. It is amusing and absurd - but then so is the predicament of any traveller who cannot speak the language.

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.
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.
