t A transatlantic conversation between Asa Briggs and William H. Whyte
Mr. Whyte's recent book of this title has excited considerable interest both here and in the U.S.A. In it Mr. Whyte argues that a new form of conformity has arisen in America-that of the Organisation Man who feels a ' moral imperative' to toe the line.
The speakers consider to what extent this really is a new phenomenon, why it has come about, and whether there is any evidence of it in Western Europe.

Musique concrete by Pierre Henry
Pierre Henry has been one of the principal experimenters in the field of musique concrete since it was first devised by Pierre Schaeffer in 1948. His compositions include an opera concret
'Orphee 53' and music for ballets by Maurice Bejart. For 'Concerto des
Ambiguites,' composed in 1954, the basic sounds were taken from a piano, used either normally or with the techniques of the 'prepared' piano. The work is in eight movements.

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.
