Production by David Davis
Marcus and Esca had taken the Eagle from the Place of Life, and made their way south with it through Caledonia and Vatentia. But the tribes were in close pursuit of them, and, while they were still several days from the Wall, they had only just avoided capture by hiding in a stream. Now, without food and without horses, they were sitting in a glen taking stock of their situation when they heard a noise below them.

: STYLE AND VISION

Five broadcasts on European painting by Eric Newton
4-Romanticism
Our enjoyment of pictures is too often hampered by the jargon of the art critics. Semi-technical terms like' expressionism ' and ' cubism — even * realism ' or ' romanticism '-are often used so imprecisely that they confuse where they should illuminate. To clear up this confusion is one of Mr. Newton's aims in this series: to give more precise meaning to such terms; to show by illustration and example how a clearer understanding of the ' -isms' and their relationship to each other can contribute greatly to our pleasure in art.
Final talk, next Wednesday: Realism
These talks are being printed in ' The Listener '
An illustrated pamphlet price 2s. 6d. (containing fifty-three reproductions, six in colour) may be obtained through news-agents and booksellers, or post free from [address removed] (Crossed postal orders, please—not stamps.)

General
Sir Leslie Hollis K.C.B. , K.B.E. formerly Chief Staff Officer to the Minister of Defence
Last night's programme in this series dealt with the new military realities that must now condition British defence policy. Tonight's speakers deal with some economic factors that must also be taken into account. Can we continue to afford to spend one and half thousand million pounds each year on defence? What would be the real economic effect of any substantial cut in defence expenditure? And are we getting full value for the money now being spent?

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.
