Professor F. M. CORNFORD (Professor of Ancient Philosophy in the University of Cambridge) : 'Greece—I, Political Life and Thought'
MODERN Europe is the heir of the ages.
The extent of its indebtedness to
Ancient Greece, Imperial Rome, Judea and the Middle Ages will be examined in three talks on each, supplemented by one talk on the Christian Roman Empire of Constantine. The series begins with an estimate of the legacy of Ancient Greece to modern Europe, originally prepared by Mr. Lowes Dickinson , and, after his recent untimely death, taken over at short notice by Professor Cornford. The first talk deals with the political life and thought of Greece, which was, politically,contemporary Europe in miniature, and philosophically, the source of modern political science. Dr. Edwyn Bevan , O.B.E., Lecturer on-Hellenistic History and Literature at King's College. London, has written an introductory pamphlet to the series, obtainable from the Publications Department, B.B.C., price 4d... 5d. post free.

: 'Precession'

THE author described Precession as a carica-JL turo, in the sense that it emphasizes the essential and seeks to present truth by wilful distortion. An old ' Punch and Judy ' showman is initiating his son into the age-old patter of his trade, rehearsing in the well-known squeak of Mr. Punch, his quarrel with Old Nick , and the intervention of Judy. The scene changes to Olympus, abode of the oldest gods, nnd the voice of Punch becomes the voice of Jupiter, Old Nick becomes Pan, the Goat God, and Judy becomes Juno. The illusion of the puppet plnv gives place to the older illusions of men about the immortals who rule their destiny. The Olympian interlude ends with Pan's fall to earth, and wo are back with the dying showman, deliriously muttering the new patter heard in the vision he has had of the origins of the traditional mime. In the hands of such experienced artists as Ernest Milton , Athene Seyler , Aubrey Mather , and Philip Wade Precession should exceed its own success of eighteen months ago.

: Other People's Lives: Strange Sects in Canada and the USA

Mr William Teeling
Mr Teeling has visited Canada and the United States as Chairman of the Catholic Emigration Society of Great Britain and has had special facilities for visiting the many strange sects, mostly of European origin, who have been driven by persecution and the dictates of conscience to take refuge in the New World. He will describe the Doukhobors, or 'Spirit-Wrestlers', Russian Quakers, who, under their mysterious leader, Peter Veregin, have continually embarrassed the police of Canada and British Columbia by their nudism; the Huderites, a sect of South German communists who flourish in Dakota; the Mennonites, non-resisting evangelicals who, for conscience sake, have wandered from Russia to Canada, Mexico, and Paraguay; the Rosicrucians, and the Mormons.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
