: THE READING PUBLIC

and the Great Tradition
CHRISTOPHER RICKS examines
Q D. Leavis 's recently reissued Fiction and the Reading Public and discusses its influential thesis in the light of research carried out since its first publication in 1932.

: PRIMITIVES IN PURSUIT OF TRUTH

by MARY DOUGLAS
Reader in Social Anthropology, University College, London
2: Intimate Worlds
If the phrase ' primitive thought is not to imply a judgment of inferiority, how are we to evaluate it? What is the relation between primitive thought, primitive economies. primitive technology, and primitive political organisation? What is the role of social specialisation in the growth away from primitive thinking? And how does that thinking relate to some of our social styles of thought today?

: RUSSIAN ORTHODOX EASTER VIGIL SERVICE

From the Russian
Orthodox Church of All Saints, Ennismore Gardens, London Celebrant,
METROPOLITAN ANTHONY BLOOM , Exarch of the Moscow Patriarchate in Western Europe
Commentary in Russian and Serbian spoken bv
FR. VLADIMIR RODZIANKO Choirmaster.
Michael Theokritoft
This year, unusually, the Russian Orthodox Easter will be celebrated on the same day as Western Easter. Even for those who understand nothing of the Orthodox faith, the Easter Vigil Service can be very moving. At the beginning of the service the Church represents the Tomb and is in complete darkness. Then, at midnight, the celebrant leads the clergy and choir in procession round the outside of the Church to the main doors which he flings open with a mighty shout of Khristos Voskrese! ' (Christ is Risen!). To this proclamation of the Resurrection the congregation reply ' Vo-istinu Voskrese! ' (He is Risen Indeed!), and those nearest the icon lamps light their candles and pass back the flame to those behind. A wave of light sweeps the Church as the Resurrection is proclaimed.
The Service ends with clergy and congregation exchanging the words 'Christ is Risen! '-' He is Risen Indeed! ' and the traditional triple kiss of peace.

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.

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.
