"GÃ¶tterdÃ¤mmerung": Friday at 6.46
To Compete or to Co-operate by Sir Harry Pilkington
Past President of the Federation of British Industries, and Chairman of Pilkington Brothers. Ltd.
British industry is continually being reminded of the blessings of competition, not least by the Restrictive Trade Practices Act which is just coming into operation; and yet, at the same time, industrialists are being increasingly exhorted to show a sense of responsibility to the community and to consult and co-operate with the Government, trade unions, and a host of public bodies. Sir Harry considers how far these two demands are compatible.

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.
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.
