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.
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.
