A monthly series on current questions in architecture and town planning
The Landscape of the Big Street
New thoughts on urban regions in the United States by Christopher Tunnard
In certain areas of the U.S.A. all distinctions between town, suburb, and country are becoming blurred. For the past year a team of economists, sociologists, and town planners from Yale University, headed by Christopher Tunnard , has been carrying out an investigation into the problems of the largest of these—the 600-mile stretch of the Atlantic seaboard from Maine to Virginia. Its aim is to obtain the data for new forms of city and regional planning.

by S. Cooppan , Ph.D .
Research Lecturer in Economics,
University of Natal
Dr. Cooppan believes that the prevailing European attitude to non-Whites in the Union is due to their sense of being a threatened minority, in spite of their power. What, he asks, of the Indians, who form a much smaller minority and have no power at all? In this light he analyses Indian reactions to present circumstances and policies, believing that their experience has something of value to offer towards an eventual solution.

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.
