4: The Molecular Basis by SIDNEY BRENNER of the M.R.C. Unit of Molecular Biology, Cambridge
The previous speakers in this series have stressed that the development of an embryo is a matter of large-scale organisation. But what is organised is a mass of molecules. Dr. Brenner describes some of the latest ideas of how molecular activity can control the emergence of form and pattern.
An enquiry by W. E. J. MCCARTHY
Research Fellow in Industrial Relations, Nuffield College, Oxford
Every year there are about 2,500 strikes in Britain. The great majority occur in a very few industries. In part, this can be explained by the characteristics of the strike-prone industry; for example, the uncertainty and danger of the work of the coal miner. But even in such an industry some work-places arc noticeably more strike-prone than others.
In this enquiry, W. E. J.
McCarthy examines, with the help of recordings with management, union officials, shop stewards, workers, and industrial relations experts, the reasons for this uneven distribution of strikes. He considers further the relevance of this to the more general problems of strike action. Produced by Richard THOMAS

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.
