Hindu society has been called * the apotheosis of the family.' This religious, moral, legal, and economic system, three millenniums old, is invaded by Western ideas of welfare. Mr. Durai considers the consequences of this invasion.
by Anthony Harvey
In this talk, prompted by two volumes of essays published early this year, Faith and Logic and Metaphysical Beliefs, Mr. Harvey points out a certain likeness in contemporary movements of theology and philosophy, and seeks an answer to the question: how are religious statements meaningful?

Secular German Music of the Renaissance: September 19
Paul Hofhaimer (1459-1537). one of the most distinguished organ players of his time, was an outstanding representative of the early Renaissance in Germany.
Heinrich Isaak (1450-1517), Flemish by birth, was the first international Renaissance composer. Unlike later musicians who travelled extensively, he never mixed national styles but wrote in the idiom of the particular country.
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.
