: Homo Ludens Beatlensis

A suggestion for a new language game by Michael Redmond Mullin

We are familiar with a sound of beatles crying 'Help!', but long before their song Ludwig Wittgenstein had described philosophy's aim as showing the fly the way out of the fly bottle. Michael Redmond Mullin reflects on the relation between the philosopher and Richard Lester's presentation of the pop idols; a relation which he locates neither on the plane of solemnity, nor on that of frivolity, but in the universe of play.

: THE SEA IN GREEK POETRY

An anthology of poems and extracts by Homer, Alceaeus, Aeschylus. Euripides, Timotheus, Plato, Theocritus, Leonidas of Tarentum, Antiphilus and Gregory of Nazianzos
Greek reader, JOHN THEOCHARIS
English reader, WILLIAM SQUIRE
Programme devised by CONSTANTINE TRYPANIS and LEO AYLEN and introduced by CONSTANTINE TRYPANIS
Nowhere in Greece is very fat from the sea. and a sense of the sea pervades all Greek writing, especially Greek poetry, from Homer to the present day. It seemed natural therefore to choose the theme of the sea for the first programme of Classical Greek poetry in the original to be broadcast by the BBC.
One of the difficulties about broadcasting Classical Greek is the question of pronunciation. For this production a Greek actor has learnt a version of the pronunciation accepted in England. The intonation is what English Classi cists will expect; the vowel sounds are Greek. Each poem will be preceded by an English version.

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.
