: NATIONALISM AND THE BRITISH COMMONWEALTH

A series of five talks
2-The Impact of Asian Membership by Nicholas Mansergh
Smuts Professor of the History of the British Commonwealth in the University of Cambridge
Has the accommodation of Asian 'nationalism,' in the membership of India, Pakistan, and Ceylon, modified traditional conceptions of the Commonwealth or loosened existing ties? Professor Mansergh reflects on these questions, and on the reasons given by Pandit Nehru in particular for remaining within the Commonwealth: has India's membership advanced, as he hoped, the cause of world peace, or of aiding under-developed countries, or of ending racial discrimination?

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
