First of two talks by John Buckatzsch
The 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 year of his life. These talks were recorded shortly before his death last August.
The verse of Hywel, son of Owain Gwynedd
Illustrated talk by Gwyn Williams
The twelfth-century Welsh prince Hywel ap Owain Gwynedd celebrated in his poetry the principal delights of his life: warfare, the landscape of North Wales, and love. During the programme all that survives of this poetry is to be read in the original Welsh and in Gwyn Williams's translations.

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.
