: Something to Read

Eric Linklater on Sir Thomas Urquhart's translation of Rabelais
No happier choice for 'Something to Read' could have been made by Major Eric Linklater than the famous seventeenth-century translation of Rabelais by that redoubtable Scot, Sir Thomas Urquhart of Cromarty. Linklater is himself a Scot - though his Orkney Island forbears are of Viking origin - and his eminence as a writer both on Scottish and on other subjects makes him well qualified to discuss what has been described as 'one of the most perfect transfusions of an author from one language into another that ever man accomplished'.
Although he is now in the Army, Eric Linklater continues to delight his public with the work of his accomplished pen. He recently published two pamphlets, 'Northern Garrison' and 'The Defence of Calais', and he was largely responsible for the writing of the recent documentary radio programme that dealt with the latter subject.

: 'MAKING PLANS 1-2

' The Regional Centre ' : Raymond Greene and George W. Cadbury
It is obviously impossible to provide the small locul community with advantages all its own, such as hospitals, museums, public libraries, universities, and so on. Such cultural, social, and hygienic amenities may be provided in a planned regionalcentretoservealarge area round and about it. The need for the more obvious amenities will be reviewed, and suggestions for others will be considered in terms of human advantage and public expenditure.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
