Talk by Otto Kahn-Freund
Professor of Law.

The Spanish Character and the Modern World
Talk by John Marks
Long study of the Spanish character has led John Marks, who lives in Spain and was for ten years Madrid correspondent of The Times, to some unexpected conclusions. He finds a psychological affinity between Spaniards and two other peoples on the periphery of Europe, the British and the Russian. But in emerging after a long period of virtual isolation Spain has turned her eyes in a new direction, towards North America. Her recent pacts with the U.S.A. have exposed her to a fresh influence, but Mr. Marks believes that nonetheless her character will remain slow to change.

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.
