Excerpts from a conversation between R. Buckminster Fuller and Reyner Banham.
Lightweight domes designed by Buckminster Fuller, the American inventor, have been erected all over the world in the last few years as exhibition pavilions, concert halls, factories, shelters against Arctic conditions, and teaching projects in universities.
In this recording, made in London in June, Mr. Fuller speaks about the structural principles of his domes and about ways in which they might be used to transform parts of our environment.

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.
