T. E. MAY, Reader in Spanish in the University of Aberdeen, tells the story of Baltasar Gracian, who spent his life discovering himself and his fellows.
The first of modern psychologists and one of the great moralists of the world, Gracian died in 1658 just after finishing his greatest work, El Criticon.

Sir WALTER PUCKEY , an authority on automation and a former President of the Institute of Production Engineers, sees the new revolution as an opportunity to delegate control of machines to the machines themselves in order to improve man's overall control of his 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.
