Mr. Conquest suggests that science-fiction mav be meeting a deficiency which has weakened Western literature for the last 200 years, the need for a tradition of novels concerned mainly with ideas rather than characters. His thoughts are prompted by Kingsley Amis's recent survey New Maps of Hell.

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.
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.
