It is proverbially dangerous, even for experts, to prophesy, but it is always interesting. Here are eight experts who. each in his own line, are to make predictions for 1935. The problem of street traffic is puzzling everyone. Next year will it be better or worse ? For two summers we have had a drought. Shall we have a third ? May Science be expected to bring us any more big discoveries, and what part will economics play ? What will women be wearing next year at Ascot ? And what do the stars foretell ? If you are interested in speculating as to the future, listen to the eight ' prophecies' tonight.

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.
