: THE ,LANDSCAPE OF TOWNS

' The Market Town ' by W. G. Hoskins
Reader in Economic History In the University of Oxford
Whatever their origin, the survival and growth of most English towns has depended on their capacity to attract trade. In the last of his three talks Dr. Hoskins shows how the size and shape of its trading centre has variously affected the modern landscape of the market town.

: EUROPE IN PERSPECTIVE

Talk by Geoffrey Barraclough
' The conception of European history which underlies all standard accounts in our own language,' says the speaker, 'goes back to the great German historian Leopold von Ranke.' Today Ranke's assumptions are no longer valid, and because contemporary tlhought about politics is bound up with an outworn conception of historical development there is need for a radical revision of current views on European history. In th;s talk Geoffrey Barraclough, Professor of Medieval History at Liverpool University, suggests a basis on which such a necessary revision should rest.

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.

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.
