: STRIKES AND THE LAW

Talk by Otto Kahn-Freund
Professor of Law.
In the University of London
Professor Kahn-Freund considers to what extent the freedom to strike can or should be restricted by legislation. He fears that many of the legal changes that have recently been suggested would only result in more unofficial strikes.

: FROM BULLFIGHTS TO BULLDOZERS

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.

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.
