: NORMAN ST. JOHN-STEVAS M.P.

on Walter Bagehot 1826-1877
A Victorian for our time
He was not a literary critic in the dreary academic sense of the term, nor a political economist, nor a historian. He was all of these and none of them. He was in fact an amateur of genius with that breadth of mind and wide range of interests which to us seems one of the most valuable and agreeable characteristics of the Victorian age. NORMAN ST. JOHN-STEVAS It would be a most agreeable good fortune to introduce Bagehot to men who hat'e not read him. To ask your friend to know Bagehot is like inviting him to seek pleasure.
PRESIDENT WOODROW WILSON
Bagehot is perhaps one of the most important and most neglected among Victorian men of letters. His book The English Constitution-a study of the working of the -English constitution between the two parliamentary reform acts, 1832 and 1867-is a classic. He was also editor of the Economist, a widely read essayist, wit, ironist and mystic. Norman St. John-Stevas, apart from his career as an M.P., has written a biography of Bagehot and is currently editing the complete literary works and papers-the first four volumes of which have already been published. Tonight he reflects on the man's life and work and sets him in the context of our time.

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.
