5-War and Social Policy
Talk by R. M. Titmuss
Professor of Social Administration in the University of London
' To explain the social life of a community in terms of aggression and struggle,' Professor Titmuss observes, ' is to explain only part of " this sorry scheme of things entire."' With that proviso in mind, he considers the way in which modern war has influenced British social policy and, reciprocally, how the direction of social policy has influenced the prosecution of war.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
