: ROMAN CONCRETE AND ROMAN PALACES

Talk by J. B. Ward Perkins
Director of the British School at Rome
Little attempt has been made by historians of architecture to consider classical buildings in terms of the materials and methods used in their construction. In the first of two talks the speaker examines the change that came over Roman architecture between about A.D. 60 and A.D. 130 with the increasingly assured use of Roman concrete. ' What in effect had been achieved during this astonishingly short period was nothing less than the turning inside out of the traditional Greek idea of architecture.'

: THE INDIAN REVOLUTION

Can Democracy Survive in India?
First of three talks by Sardar K. M. Panikkar Indian Ambassador Designate to France
' Most observers in the West were at first critical of India's intention to establish a democratic system of government.' The speaker surveys the reasons for this attitude-the strength of the caste system, of monarchical and feudal traditions, eighty per cent illiteracy-and assesses their weight today against many factors which he believes are strongly favourable to the democracy which has been established.

: A TASTE FOR SPINACH

Talk by Edward Hyams
' Spinach is one of those things about which people feel very strongly,' says Edward Hyams. ' A man may change his politics, his wife, or even his religion before he will change his opinion that spinach is one of the nastiest or one of the nicest vegetables.'

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.
