A Recorded Summary of Birmingham's Civic Tributes
Before devoting himself to national politics, Joseph Chamberlain was one of the greatest municipal reformers of the Victorian age. In his three years as Mayor of Birmingham (1873-75) he set afoot a great scheme of slum clearance, led the way in the purchase of gas and water undertakings for the city, and gave impetus to a vigorous progressive spirit in education and public health administration generally. He was a pioneer of the scheme for creating the University of Birmingham, and its first Chancellor. The tower in the Central Court of the University buildings was erected in his memory.
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.
