Can she excuse my wrongs
I saw my lady weep
Shall I sue
Far from triumphing court
Lady if you so spite me

William H. Whyte in conversation with Ernest Gellner
Mr. Whyte's book of this title aroused considerable interest-and alarm-about the effect of industrial society in America upon personality and patterns of leadership.
In this conversation, recorded during a visit to London earlier this year, he reflects upon the pressures towards conformity in various fields—management, education, social research—in Britain as well as America; and upon certain counter-trends which he believes may be changing the picture since his book appeared in 1956.

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
