A series of seven talks
This series is an attempt to assess some of the failures and achievements in planning and architecture over the past ten years and to outline some new conceptions which might find support in the next decade.
2-Rotterdam and Coventry by Robert Gardner-Medwin

1—We Summon Our Resources
This is the first of three reflective talks by Mrs. Scott-Maxwell, who has recently retired after many years' practice as an analytical psychologist.
Following Jung's belief that all human beings have both a masculine and a feminine side to their nature, she considers what she believes is the modem emergence of the masculine in many women, and the difficulties this may bring to the closest relationships.

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.

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.
