JM DORFE (In the Village). The village slumbers and dreams whilst the watch-dogs bark. In the morning dreams vanish. No matter : the dreamers have had their pleasures, and can dream of them again. Howl away, dogs ! No sleep and sweet dreams for the lonely wanderer. What use to linger among happy folk ? His dream is over.
Der stilrmische Morgen (The Stormy Morning).
He hails as a friend the winter storm, with its wild, disordered sky, torn by lightning, for in his heart rages ever a storm of grief.
Tauschung (Illusion). He follows an elusive light, that seems friendly, but misleads. A man sick at heart clasps any hope that promises a moment of cheer. Even an illusion is better than empty hopelessness.
Der Wegweiser (The Signpost). He asks himself why he leaves the highway and takes hidden by-paths. He need avoid no one. Signposts point to the lively towns, but he must take the lonely roads, ever seeking rest and finding none.
THIS evening in reaching the discussion of Indian religion and philosophy, Dr. Waterhouse arrives at the consideration of the religion of self-suppression. He instances the Vedic religion and Indian philosophy as expressing the ideal of the loss of Self in the All. He proceeds to an examination of the Vision of the Buddha; the religion without a soul; the suppression of desire, and the Great Plan of the absorption of the individual into the Infinite.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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

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.
