: THE ENGLISH REVOLUTION

Social Conflict in early Stuart England Eight lectures given by PETER LASLETT Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge at the University of Warwick
5; Thomas Hobbes : the intellectual in a time of crisis
Thomas Hobbes's Leviathan is the most important justification of obedience of this or perhaps any other period.
Mr. Laslett discusses how the book is related to the model of society that he Is describing: and asks whether it is legitimate to conclude from the absolutist character that there must have been revolutionary forces at work in contemporary English society.
Austin Woolrych on Puritanism and Politics in the early seven-teenth century: Thurs., 7.0 p.m.

: JEAN COCTEAU

An evocation by Carl Wildman
Jean Cocteau. born in 1889 at Maisons-Laffitte, died at Milly-la-Foret in 1963, buried in solitude in an isolated chapel. His mural paintings of local herbs, standing guard around him, flake away.
There lies a poet who had an astonishing variety of gifts— dramatist, film maker, novelist, critic, caricaturist, designer, composer of ballets-here reflected in his works and through the words of those who knew him in early days and later years, including
Jacques RUEFF. his successor at the Académie Francaise
JEAN Cassou , his successor at the Aoadémie Royale de Belgique
PIERRE GEORGRL . organiser of the Exhibition Jean Cocteau et son Temps

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.
