Studies in African anthropology by Max Gluckman
Professor of Social Anthropology in the University of Manchester
6-The Bonds of the Colour Bar
' The divisions, the conflicts, the hatreds between people and groups in South Africa are obvious enough,' says the speaker. ' The striking problem here is to find the order, not the quarrels; to see how quarrels are contained, not how they arise.' In his final lecture Professor Gluckman traces the changing relations between black and white groups in the history of Zululand and shows that, until recently, there were many cross-linkages. ' Zululand,' he observes, is an illustration, though not a complete miniature, of modern Africa.'
(The recorded broadcast of May 18)

Second of two talks by John Buckatzsch
A change in economic method from classical economics which is really a ' branch of philosophy ' to the study of national income and actual situations gives a hope that economics may become useful as an applied science. This was the question to which John Buckatzsch was devoting his attention during the last years of his life. These talks were recorded shortly before his death last August.

of Dante Alighicri
The third cantica of the Divine Comedy, translated into English triple rhyme by Laurence Binyon
A reading in six parts
Produced by Peter Duval Smith
PART 4 (Cantos 18-22): Dante and Beatrice ascend from the Fifth Heaven of Mars (where the souls of warriors and martyrs are seen as stars which make up a dazzling cross) to the Sixth Heaven of Jupiter (where the spirits who were pre-eminent on earth for their sense of justice appear as a cluster of lights which forms itself into the pattern of an eagle's head); the symbolic Eagle speaks to Dante with a single voice. expounding among other things the inscrutability of Divine Justice; Dante and Beatrice ascend into the Seventh Heaven of Saturn where are those who passed their lives in holy contemplation; the poet speaks with St. Peter Damian and St. Benedict; Dante and Beatrice are snatched up into the Eighth Heaven of the Fixed S'ars, from which height Dante looks down at the heavens beneath him and at the distant earth.

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.
