: THE PROCESS OF EVOLUTION

First of six lectures by Julian Huxley , F.R.S.
In his first lecture Dr. Huxley maintains that all reality is parr of a single process of evolution and asks how one can study processes of this sort scientifically. He describes the three phases of evolution: the inorganic, the biological, and the human. A? Dt. Huxley will be primarily concerned in later lectures with the biological phase, tonight he analyses in some detail the phenomena it presents for s:udy. Evolutionary progress, he contends, is a fact; he describes some of the evidence that supports this claim, and indicates how the course of this progress can be scientifically formulated.
To be repeated on October 8
Next lecture: October 13

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.
