A story of a city by R. L. Mackie
Production by John Gough
Dundee, third largest city in Scotland, gives hospitality to the British Association this year from August 30 to September 6. Doubtless a number of those who propose to attend the Association think of Dundee in terms of jute and marmalade. Actually, Dundee has from two to three hundred industries of varying size, and a cultural record of some importance. Its position on the Tay is one of the finest that a city could have. Tonight's programme is intended to bring visitors to the British Association up to date in their knowledge of the city: its history, industry, culture, and amenity.
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.
