: 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
8: An Alternative View
Though the events of the years 1640 and 1660 certainly interrupted political life, and may have interrupted economic and social life as well, their effect was not to weaken political consensus but to confirm and intensify it. In his last lecture, Mr. Laslett argues that the most important effect of these events therefore was to forge a national political mythology, which has changed as national political sentiment has changed: and he concludes by examining the causes dictated to the English Revolution by the current mythology.

: POEMS BY SAMUEL BECKETT

Read by JACK MACGOWRAN and DENYS HAWTHORNS
Introduced by Dr. JOHN FLETCHER Lecturer in French at the University of Durham
Samuel Beckett is relatively little known as a poet. if the sense of the word poet is taken to mean writer of poetry. In fact, of course, in a wider sense all Beckett's writing is that of a poet. His plays, novels and stories are highly precise structures of sound and sense where not a single word can be removed without doing damage to the total structure. The slim volume of poems he has published is perhaps the most directly personal of Becketr* works, for it is full of references (obscure though they may seem) to his life in Dublin, London, and Paris. These poems are difficult and in this programme they are introduced by Dr. John Fletcher, author of the most thorough study of Beckett's novels, who has proved himself a master in uncovering the meaning of hiddeD allusions in Beckett's work.

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.
