r Radio 4 leaves behind the BBC archive as Nigel Farrell sets off on a trawl through Britain's corporate past in four programmes. "Now Hear This"
What appears to be a modem obsession has in fact been with us for some time. In a look back at
"corporate communications" through this century, Nigel Farell scans hundreds of works magazines that have been found in hidden vaults, dusted down and given a new lease of life.
There's also a look at some early corporate films, and recordings from Britain's premier factory radio station.

Once described as "the most original featherweight poetry of our time", the children's poems of Walter de la
Mare still earn their place in modem anthologies.
And with a recent revival of interest in de la Mare's adult writing, Nigel Forde discusses a new biography and examines the appeal of this intense and mysterious writer. Producer Robyn Read

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.
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.
