' How people choose their books'
' Buying Them'
Geoffrey Grigson and A. S. Court
A discussion between a critic and a bookseller
What is the proportion of new to second-hand books in the average private library ? How much are books re-read ? Do people buy more in the town or the country ? What has been the effect of book clubs and cheap editions on the bookseller's trade ? These are some of the questions to be discussed this evening.
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.
