... is John Dancy 's theme in this series of highly personal films
Headmaster of Lancing when he was only 33, now headmaster of Marlborough, JOHN DANCY believes a public school can only be successful if it offers its pupils a vision - ' a vision of something they can live by, or aspire to.'
In his One Pair of Eyes JOHN DANCY , one of Britain's most progressive public school heads, shows how he is trying to achieve his aims at Marlborough - a public school where there is no fagging or beating, where a small number of girls are admitted, and where the old games-playing traditions of ' muscular Christianity ' have no part in his concept of what a school community ought to be.
Dancy's vision of understanding comes from a mixture of Greek and Christian ideals- in the words of one of his favourite quotations: ' To Christ we owe compassion, to the Greeks everything else.'

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.
