: The Passionate Years: 1: Deadly and Quick

Three programmes based on incidents in the lives of the poets Byron, Shelley, and Keats
Written and adapted from contemporary sources by DEREK PARKER
The romance between Lord Byron Lamb and Lady Caroline Lamb
with and
Produced by JOHN POWELL

The Passionate Years
T. S. ELIOT once pointed out. with perfect truth, that it is almost impossible to read the poetry of Byron, Shelley, or Keats without remembering the men themselves, with all their failings. 'I feel a thousand mortal things about me. But nothing god-like,' wrote Byron; and it may be that their own words reveal the characters of the three poets rather more clearly than they would have wished, in the three programmes to be broadcast under he general title The Passionate Years.
The incidents with which the programmes deal are amusing, but also tragic: Byron's affair with Lady Caroline Lamb is often like a French farce - yet it fatally injured her mind, and threw him on rebound into his disastrous marriage. Shelley and Byron, boating on Lake Leman, were immediately friends; but Shelley was shattered at the news of Byron's liaison with Claire Claremont, and the holiday ended abruptly and painfully. Though Keats's letters are full of fun, Coleridge, meeting him, said: 'When I shook him by the hand, there was death.'
The Romantic poets loved and lived life with passionate intensity: it was the consciousness of their own, and each other's imperfections which in different ways wrecked the lives of Byron and Shelley; Keats, potentially almost angelic, was mangled by the inexorable progress of disease, his own nature warped and ruined. If Byron, Shelley, and even Keats, seem at times to be cruel or vulgar or silly, one had best remember one's own frailties, and with Byron hope to attain... a disposition
To love and to be merciful, to pardon The folly of my species, and (that's human) To be indulgent to my own.

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.
