It is often said that the United States has replaced Britain as the world's dominant power. Professor Barraclough argues that this view is based on a misreading of history, and that the rise of the United States to world power reflects not a change of leadership in an existing system but the emergence of a new system. followed by interlude at 9.25

Among present-day artists there is a new interest in ' images,' in representational elements as distinct from pure abstraction. Bernard Smith , art historian and art critic from Melbourne, considers the use of images in the work of Francis Bacon , Sidney Nolan , and Arthur Boyd , all of whom have recently had London exhibitions.

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.
