by the Rt. Hon. Kenneth Younger
Director-General of the Royal
Institute of International Affairs
Must Britain decide now to join the European Economic Community? Mr. Younger tays that the political implications arc so far-reaching and at the same time so obscure that any immediate decision would have to be negative. He thinks that as the future form of European unity becomes clearer Britain will be able to achieve a satisfactory association with her neighbours which will take account of the differences between Britain and Europe as well as the similarities.

Les Lauriers sont coupes, first published serially in La Revue Independante in 1887, was the first recorded example of novel in ' interior monologue ' or ' stream of consciousness ' form. It strongly influenced lames Joyce, who picked up a copy on station bookstall on the way to Tours in 1903.

by Bernard Malamud
Read by Sam Wanamaker
The characteristic world of Bernard Mala mud's stories is the poor Jewry of New York. The Magic Barrel, which takes as its hero an earnest rabbinical student in search of a wife, is a hilarious and sad exploration of a corner of that world.

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.
