: The Reith Lectures POWER AND THE STATE

by Lord Radcliffe of Werneth,
P.C., G.B.E.
4 — On the Makers of the American Constitution
At the end of the American War of Independence a group of remarkable men, including Alexander Hamilton and James Madison , set about drawing up a constitution. Quite consciously they tried to work out a system that would give unity to the nation in such affairs as defence and foreign relations while preserving independence to the States in many other matters -which would ensure powerful central authority where it was needed while preserving the rights of the individual. In this lecture Lord Radcliffe talks about some of the considerations these men had in mind and the answers they found to some of the problems that arose.

Arnold Cooke wrote his Piano Concerto in 1939-40. Arrangements were made for it to be played at a Promenade Concert in 1943, but in the event this proved impossible and the work received its first performance when it was broadcast in November of that year. There are three movements: Allegro moderato, Poco lunio, and Allegro giocoso. H. R.

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.
