: THE ETHICS OF PLANNING

Discussion between Christopher Hollis , m.p., and Charles Madge , Social Development Officer for Stevenage New Town
Is planning increasing or killing our vitality? Is it a release or a restriction? Who has the right to impose standards on the rest of us? These are some of the questions the speakers discuss, taking town planning as their starting point. Each speaker has a professional or political interest in planning and approaches it from a different standpoint; but each is a creative writer and is concerned with the problem in humane terms.

by C. F. Powell F.R.S ,., Professor of Physics at Bristol University
During the last three years there have been important advances in our knowledge of the most transient forms of matter yet discovered-the mesons. Professor Powell describes the behaviour of these fundamental particles and their relation to the cosmic rays that enter the earth's atmosphere from outer space, and outlines some of the problems still unsolved.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
