SCIENCE SURVEY

New Valves for New Needs by J. S. McPetrie , D.SC., M.I.E.E.
Head of the Radio Department, Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough
One of our greatest war-winning weapons was radar, which was made possible by the development of entirely new types of valves working on very short or micro-waves. These micro-waves have many of the characteristics of light waves: they can be beamed in definite directions, and require only small aerials. Such characteristics make micro-waves
'increasingly important for navigational aids, and for telephone, radio, and television links. They have also led to world-wide efforts to invent new and more efficient micro-wave valves.
This week the Institution of Electrical
Engineers is holding an international symposium, and Dr. McPetrie discusses some of the new ideas that have emerged.

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.
