A group of four talks by Tibor Mende
4-Challenge to the West
After recently revisiting Asia-in particular India, Japan, and China—M.
Mende feels that these three countries, containing nearly half the world's population, together form a triangle within which the fate of the West and thus of the whole world may be decided.
In his final talk M. Mende, summing up his impressions of China, Japan, and India, examines the attitude of the West to these countries and its effect on them, and calls for a new Western approach to them and to other backward countries.


LIEDERKREIS (Heine), Op. 24
Morgens steh' ich auf und frage; Es treibt mich hin; Ich wandclte unter den Baumen; Lieb' Liebchen, leg's Handchen; Schone Wiege meiner Leiden; Warte, warte, wilder Schiffsmann; Berg und Burgen schau'n herunter; An-fangs wollt' ich fast versagen, Mit Myrten und Rosen
Lied eines Scbmiedes; Meine Rose; Kommen und Scheiden; Die Sennin; Einsamkeit; Der schwere Abend; Requiem

A discussion between
Ernst Mayr
Professor of Zoology
In the University of Harvard and A. J. Cain
Animal Taxonomist
In the University of Oxford
In The Origin of Species, published a hundred years ago this year, the principal problem that Darwin did not solve was, in fact, the origin of species-he was more concerned to establish natural selection as a means of evolutionary change within a population.
Professor Mayr claims that the real origin of species is a comparatively recent discovery made primarily by students of avian systematics, and he discusses this thesis with Dr. Cain.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
