THIS is the second of Mr. Driberg's three talks on the fascinating science of anthropology the study of man's culture at different stages of development, so many of which coexist side by side in the world of today.

: Miss Ann SPICE : ' A Bookshelf of Old Favourites: "The Tower of London," by Harrison Ainsworth'

SCOTT founded the vogue of the historical novel, and Harrison Ainsworth took advantage of it. Without the immense assiduity of research that Scott brought to the business.,and equally. without overloading his novels with introductions, prefaces, and historical notes, as Scott was apt to do, he turned out a number of excellent stories that wore best-sellers in their day, and have still a certain popufarity, particularly 'The Tower of London,' of which Miss Ann Spico will talk this afternoon.

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.
