An Electric Universe by R. A. Lyttreton ,
F.R.S. Stokes Lecturer in Mathematics in the University of Cambridge
In this, the last of a group of three talks,
Dr. Lyttleton starts from the realisation that there is no experimental evidence for absolute numerical equality in the charge on the electron and proton. He assumes in fact, that they are not precisely equal and from this develops a new theory.

by Miriam Camps Research Associate, Princeton University
The European Free Trade Area agreement, recently initialed in Stockholm, has been supported in this country and elsewhere primarily as a bridge-building operation between the Seven and the Six. Miriam Camps, who has been making a special ttudy of the subject for the Ford Foundation and P.E.P., suggests that the trouble with the Stockholm plan is that, although it lays the foundation for a bridge with the Six, it is the kind of bridge that the Six find even less acceptable today than they did a year ago.

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.
