Use Scientific Method?
First of four talks by Stepher Toulmin
Lecturer in the Philosophy of Science in the University of Oxford
'As a scientist put it recently: " It's very nice when philosophers congratulate me on what I'm doing; the pity is I never recognise their description of it." ' Stephen Toulmin examines the contrast between the accounts of science and scientific method given in books on logic and philosophy, and the activities and arguments of working scientists.
The Harvey Phillips
(Leader. Hugh Bean )
Conductor, Harvey Phillips
' The Cearne ' (pronounced Serne) is the name of Harvey Phillips' home in Kent. Gordon Jacob wrote the Sinfonietta specially for this orchestra (which performed it for the first time two years ago) and dedicated it to Harvey Phillips and his wife, Pamela Harrison. It is in three movements: the first is quick and vigorous, the second slow and reflective, and the last begins energetically but ends on a quiet note, recalling some of the themes from the other two movements.
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.
