No city in Europe, except possibly Rome, has more secrets to yield to the archaeologist than Constantinople, which was the capital of half the world when London consisted of no more than a village, a fort and a ford. Mr. Casson, who is Lecturer in Archaeology at the University of Oxford, has been the director of a recent expedition to excavate in Old Stamboul, and he has some interesting stories about their finds.
A Play in Three Acts by ST. John ERVINE
Presented by VICTOR SMYTHE
S.B. from Manchester
John Thurlow , the head of Thurlow's
Shipbuilding Yard, has at last completed the task of building a super-ship, which in his estimation is unsinkable. His one sorrow is that his son Jack has grown up a priggish, humourless lad, whose outlook on life is characterized by a persistent revolt against convention. He opposes his father's wish that he should take his place at Thurlows' and carry on the work of three generations. The play describes the conflict between the ambitious
I father and the easy-going Bon-a conflict tamiliar enough in the modern novel and play, but here dealt with in an original and intensely poignant manner.
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.
