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 six-hundred-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.
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.
