: The Craftsman and Industry

Talk by Wyndham Goodden
Mass production methods have made good machinery but, Mr. Goodden believes, have failed, in this country, to bring quality and a high standard of design into most other products. Can the skill and spirit of the craftsman be re-introduced to industry Our national trade - and our taste - largely depends on the solution of this problem.
Mr. Goodden is Chief Officer of the Scottish Committee of the Council of Industrial Design.


Speaker: Wyndham Goodden

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
