: THE ATLANTIC DILEMMA

by Alastair Buchan Director of the Institute for Strategic Studies
Strategic studies are continually evolving and Mr. Buchan has revised some of the views published nearly two years ago in his book N.A.T.O. in the 1960s.

: HOUSES TODAY AND TOMORROW

Cleeve Barr
Chief Architect to the Ministry of Housing talks to Graeme Shankland architect and planner
The urgent need for more-and better -houses is much on the public conscience. A report by the Central Housing Advisory Committee recommending greatly improved standards for new housing has just been published.
What kind of houses do we need for the future? Can the experience of the School Building Programme be applied to the very different problems of housing? Does industrialisation of building imply uniformity of design? One of a group of programmes on new trends in public architecture

: THE ROAD NOT TAKEN

by Philip Hobsbaum
Mr. Hobsbaum believes that the three English poets Edward Thomas , Wilfred Owen , and Isaac Rosenberg , all of whom were killed in the First World War, would have represented a third and a more fruitful alternative to the barren choice between Georgianism and American modernism which faced young English poets in the 1920s.

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

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
