Day Navigation



by Kevin Holland
The riots of African women, the resignation of the Province's Executive Committee, and the Natal-led split in the South African Opposition have brought Natal more into the news recently than at any time since the siege of Ladysmith.
Mr. Holland analyses the trends behind these events, which he believes apply to South Africa as a whole.

Contraction with Consent by Sir Raymond Streat , K.B.E.
Chairman of the Cotton Board
The reorganisation of the cotton industry is proceeding on entirely novel lines. Protection, nationalisation, and contraction through bankruptcy have all been discarded in favour of a new kind of government intervention. Sir Raymond Streat examines its prospects of success and speculates on its possible application elsewhere.

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

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.
