A series of talks commenting on current legal issues
32—Easements: an expanding concept
by a barrister
The owner of one piece of land may have rights over another—rights of way, for instance, or rights of light. Such ' easements ' for the benefit of an estate are nowadays not confined to a few well-established types, and the courts have recently been recognising new ' easements.' This talk discusses the significance of this tendency.


Talk by Sheila T. van der Horst Ph.D.
Senior Lecturer in Economics,
University of Cape Town
In this, the second of two opposing talks, Dr. van der Horst examines the changes in the Union's economy due to the rapid growth of manufacturing industries. She believes that the apartheid policy would only be practicable if mining and agriculture predominated, and that in present conditions and apart from other objections it would involve prohibitive and disruptive economic set-backs.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
