: ' British Art'

Mr. R. M. Y. GLEADOWE
THIS AFTERNOON'S BROADCAST will trace the history of flat decoration and low reliefs from times before the Conquest down to the present day.
The earliest workers in gold and silver bronze ; the blacksmith. Then fine needlework, metal work, and embroidery, which for centuries have been famous abroad. The art of gardening, and of engraving on wood and metals. Then craftsmanship, which lapsed during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, only to recover its prestige in the Gothic Revival, but never quite its quality of design.
The stimulus given to craftsmanship and design in the nineteenth century was to a certain extent negatived by machinery and mass production. These fine and essentially British Arts are today slowly regaining their mastery of the trade.

: ' Pillars of the English Church'

Scribes-2
THOMAS KEN
By the Rev. Canon A. C. DEANE, M.A.
THOMAS KEN may be known to comparatively few today, though to tens of thousands his morning and evening hymns are familiar : ' Awake, my soul, and with the sun ', and ' Glory to Thee, my God, this night '.
Like Jeremy Taylor , the subject of the last broadcast, he was a brave man, and perhaps the braver of the two, for
Taylor was brave in loyalty to his king ; Ken in loyalty to his conscience.
He is famous as being one of the ' seven bishops ' who refused to publish the Declaration of Indulgence by James II, for which he was committed to the Tower. He again obeyed his conscience by refusing to take the oath of allegiance to William and Mary, for which he was deprived of his see.
Born in Hertfordshire, he is supposed to have spent his boyhood, after the death of his parents, in the bouse of Izaak Walton , who had married his half sister, Anne. He was a scholar of Winchester, and his name is to be seen there cut in the cloisters. At Oxford he gave alms to the poor, and, a poor man himself always, he was later in his life to give the best part of a legacy of £4,000 away in charity.
He was admired for his purity and fidelity to conscience, yet a chaige of narrowness was levelled against him, but the man who refused Nell Gwyn lodgings at his prebendal house on the Court's visit to Winchester, and turned the Duchess of Poitsmouth from the King's room when he lay dying, yet absolved Charles II on his death bed. And even for this he was rebuked.
Dryden's description of the poor paison of a town, from Chaucer, has been supposed to be a portrait of Ken ; Monckton Milnes (Lord Houghton) wrote verses on his tomb ; he is buried under the East window of Frome parish church, and in t888 a window was set up to his memory in Wells Cathedral.
(Continued overleaf.)

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.
