' The Wandering Scholar '
HELEN WADDELL
The object of this broadcast is to convey the atmosphere of twelfth-century Europe and the passionate desire for learning which prevailed in those times. The talk, which will be illustrated by readings from contemporary poetry, letters, and by the singing of contemporary songs, will bring to the microphone a broadcaster exceptionally qualified to cover the subject. Helen Waddell is an authority on the scholars and universities of the Middle Ages, and has made delightful translations of mediaeval Latin lyrics. She will tell listeners about the life of a typical
' vagus ' or wandering scholar of the twelfth century-one of those young men who went up to college, gay and confident, and came down to wander over Europe with the minstrels and the tinkers and the dancing bears. You will hear about the games the scholars played, the inns where they slept, the actual letters they wrote home, the songs they sang, the poems they wrote-in short, the sorrows and joys of a wandering scholar and his life on the road.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
