Talk by Norwood Russell Hanson
Lecturer in Philosophy of Science in the University of Cambridge and Fellow of St. John's College
The scientist's education is said to be insufficiently humanised, too narrow, too specialised; it makes him inarticulate in discussions with laymen. Some educators recommend liberal applications of Culture as a cure. Against this, Mr. Hanson suggests giving the scientist a fuller understanding of his own subject through its history and philosophy.

Talk by J. L. Sadie, EC .Dr.
Professor of Economics. Stellenbosch University
It is commonly assumed that the apartheid policy will meet an insuperable obstacle in South Africa's need for the continuance of African labour in industrial centres. Professor Sadie, who supports the apartheid policy, believes that the Government has already provided, in theory, a solution to this problem, and examines the likelihood of the theory coming to pass in fact.
An Opposite View, by Sheila van der
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.
