: LIVING HERITAGE: THE BALANCE OF NATURE

6-Ecology or Chemistry? by A. H. Strickland
For a century, crop producers have tried to vanquish the five thousand different insects that are among man's greatest enemies by trying to control them with chemicals... A new attitude suggests that an ecological approach may succeed where * trouble-shooting with chemicals' has failed.
Mr. Strickland is a member of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food Plant Pathology Laboratory at Harpenden.

: ANCIENT GREEK MUSIC

Talk by R. P. Winnington-Ingram
Professor of Greek Language and Literature in the University of London (King's College)
The music examples sung by Andrew Raeburn
Music was widely practised and highly prized by the Greeks; indeed, Plato believed that no change could be made in styles of music without affecting the morals of society; but very little of the actual music survives, and the theory of it is much disputed. Professor Winnington-Ingram describes the principal characteristics of Greek music, and suggests an explanation for the moral and emotional differences that were attached to different kinds of melody.

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.

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.
