The South's New Dilemma
Talk by John Hope Franklin
Professor of History at
Howard University, Washington, D.C. Since racially segregated schools were declared unconstitutional in the U.S.A. in 1954, 'the South has persuaded Itself,' says Professor Franklin, 'that a teal dilemma exists. It regards itself as faced with the alternative of yielding to 0 specious sociological Supreme Court decision that presumes to interfere with its internal affairs, or of maintaining its right " by lawful resistance " to preserve its local and racial integrity. Thus it proceeds to wrestle with an age-old problem in the age-old context of honour and morality.'

Talk by J. Z. Young , F.R.S.
Professor of Anatomy.
University College. London
Professor Young's researches on the ways in which animals learn are already known to listeners. In this talk he describes his more recent experiments on the learning powers of the octopus and the structures in its brain that make learning possible. Electronic circuits built to imitate these brains can be used to test the correctness of theories about memory and to suggest new experiments on the living animal.

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.
