Professor ElLEEN POWER (Professor of Economic
History in the University of London): The Middle Ages-I, Political Life and Thought '
The civilized world is groping for a satisfactory conception of unity. It is the glory and the paradox of the Middle Ages that they achieved the conception, but failed to maintain it in practice. The Holy Roman Empire, which united mediaeval society under the complementary rule of the Pope and the Emperor, did immense service to the modern world in preserving the memory of the Roman Empire and the unity of the Christian Church, while assimilating into the European scheme the northern barbarians who had overrun the Mediterranean world. Europe retained the titular unity until the time of Napoleon, when its framework finally collapsed, being, in Voltaire's phrase, no longer ' Holy, nor Roman, nor an Empire.' Today urgent efforts arc being made to resurrect the mediæval ideal in a political form suited to modern needs.

: Songs from the Shows

The present generation knows the London
Pavilion as the home, since 1918, of the Cochran Revues, notably Phi-Phi, On With, the Dance, Blackbirds, and, with Noel Coward , This Year of Grace. Many of the ' hits' of recent years were borri in this island-site theatre at ' the centre of the world.' and Miss Jessie Matthews will recall in to-night's broadcast many of the songs she sang in the original productions of One Damn Thing After Another, This Year of Grace, and Wake Up and Dream. While that famous comedian, Nelson Keys , recalls memories of Buzz Buzz, in which he appeared at the ' Pav ' in 1920.

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.
