: C. P. E. BACH

Sonata No. 1, in E minor Rondo in D minor Sonata No. 4, in A played by Celia Ariel ! (piano)


Piano: Celia Ariel


Talk by N. R. Hanson
Lecturer in the Philosophy of Science in the University of Cambridge
There was a time when physicists could think about atoms only by visualising them. This implied a concept of atomic structure which scientific explanation has transcended. ' Only when the quest for picturability ended,' says Mr. Hanson, ' was the real nature of explanation within all Natural Philosophy made clear to us.'

: JOHANN REUCHLIN (1455-1522)

Talk by Philip E. Hughes
The reputation which Johann Reuchlin built up in the Germany of the Reformation was based mainly on his achievements in the field of Hebrew learning. His Rudiments of Hebrew was published before the Reformation. In this talk Mr. Hughes explains Reuchlin's interpretation of the Jewish Cabala with special reference to the secret names of God as disclosed in his book The Cabalistic Art, which appeared in the same year as Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door.

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.
