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. In this talk he also argues that the United States military contribution to the Alliance is increasing while American political influence in Europe is declining.
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.

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.
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.
