Does art obscure the truth? by R. W. K. Hinton
Fellow of Peterhouse. Cambridge
The art of history is to explain development by means of historical models. Some of these, like the Whig model of constitutional development, certainly obscured truth. Is this the nature of models? How do you avoid distortion?

Pifth of twelve readings from Homer's Iliad
by George Homans
Professor of Sociology at Harvard
' One of the ironies of recent social thought is that the most radical idem have confirmed us in our prejudices, and the great innovators have played into the hands of the conformers.' This is one of Professor Homans's conclusions after reading William H. Whyte's recent study of conformity in American business, The Organization Man.
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.
