: Pillars of the English Church

'Prophets '—I
' Thomas Arnold '
The Rev. Canon C. E. RAVEN, D.D.
ARNOLD OF RUGBY is probably the most famous schoolmaster in English history. ' Tom Brown ' idolised him,
Samuel Butler satirised him, Victorian'England took him as an ideal. That ideal may be rather remote from those of our own age, but, on the other hand, Arnold has many more claims to be remembered than by the way he handled his school, though he was the first to add mathematics, modern history, and modern languages to the ordinary school course, and made Rugby famous.
Both before he went, and during the fourteen years that he spent there, he had many other interests and activities -notably the historical method, ecclesiastical policy, and ' the social question '. Consequently, he figures as the first of the ' Prophets ' in this series, and Dr. C. E. Raven will talk about him this evening.
Thomas Arnold died at the early age of forty-six. His eldest son, Matthew, was the distinguished poet and critic.
' Flowers ', his father used to say,
' are my music ' ; and a pleasant picture , may be visualised of him, walking by the side of his wife's pony. looking for flowers in the hedgerows, and cheering on those of his children who were tired.
That side of Thomas Arnold , who was as simple as he could be stern, as tender as he could be severe, is shown in his son's lines on ' Rugby Chapel

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.
