: CONTRASTS

A series of music and arts features ,
John Betjeman in TENNYSON
—A BEGINNING AND AN END with Sir Charles Tennyson
Produced by Julian JEBB
John Betjeman has always loved the poetry of Tennyson-he has also always loved the man, and for many years he has wanted to pay a tribute to the poet on television. This film is not a biography, still less a piece of criticism. It is a celebration of Tennyson's poetry set against two distinct aspects of his life and work.
Tennyson enjoyed more success in his own lifetime than any other great English poet, before or since. One part of the film examines his fame and reveals that the Grand Old Man of Surrey and the Isle of Wight was a delightful companion, a generous host, and eccentric neighbour. The other part of the film deals with the background of a Lincolnshire rectory, where Tennyson grew up one of eleven children, and the surrounding landscape which inspired so much of his poetry. The film is lyrical and anecdotal in style, and sheds unexpected light on a much-loved poet.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
