TO EXPLAIN what is meant by the title of this talk, it is sufficient to say that experience has shown that there arc various points in the British Isles where power can be geneiated cheaply, due in some cases to the actual design of the power station, for example. These stations have been connected together by means of overhead cables supported on the now familiar pylons so that gradually a network or grid, like the housewife's grid, has been spread over the country. Loads such as industrial districts, towns, etc., are connected to the nearest point of the supply and in this way electricity for domestic ' load ', lighting, heating, cooking, etc., becomes available at a cheap rate.
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.
