by Brian Foss
Lecturer in Psvchology at Birkbeck College, London
' What one would like to see, of course, is a clear demonstration of humans behaving like the pigeons, and for the same reasons..... ' Experiments with pigeons have shown that a simple variation of training technique can produce much more lasting results. Mr. Foss speculates on possible implications for the study of human behaviour.

A Time for Decision by Aubrey Silberston
Fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge, and University Lecturer in Economics
Is a further great expansion of the British motor industry justified when there are such problems facing it as the entry of U.S. competition in the small-car field and the beginning of the European Common Market, in which British exporter* may find selling difficult?

by Lucie Manen
To vary the timbre of the voice to suit the mood of a phrase or the character of an operatic role, singers have had for centuries to rely on empirical methods. As a result of her researches Lucie Manen offers an explanation of the physical processes involved in these changes of vocal mood and suggests how the principles behind them can be consciously applied, illustrating her findings with gramophone records.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
