Y Parch R. G. BERRY
THIS feature, originally arranged for November
16, had, unfortunately, to be postponed. The Parody is a new literary form of Welsh and is not often attempted, whereas, satire (Y dychangerdd) has had a longer vogue. In prose and verse the parody can bo an effective criticism both of the style and the intellectual outlook of contemporary authors. Just as the cartoonist exaggerates a facial expression or a way of dressing, so the parodist fastens on a mannerism in the form or in the thought of an author's work. It's value, however, lies not so much in its criticism, as in the gaiety with which it burlesques popular and even great writers ; and the touch of humorous malice, never wholly absent from the best parodies, adds to the attractiveness of this comparatively late-comer to the temple of Welsh literature.

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
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.
