Three talks by O. R. Frisch , F.R.S. Jacksonian Professor of Natural Philosophy
In the University of Cambridge
2—The ' Strange ' Particles
In his first talk Professor Frisch described some of the thirty or so fundamental particles with which an understanding of the scheme of nature is built up.
Sixteen of the new particles that have come to light during the past ten years or so have such strange and complex properties that they have been nicknamed ' the strange particles.' This talk describes some of the devices by which these particles--or rather, their tracks-are made visible, the ways in which they are made artificially with the help of accelerators, and the logical pattern in which they arrange themselves.

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
