: The American Novel

Six studies by ARTHUR MIZENER
Professor of English at Cornell University
3: The Noble Savage: Mark Twain
Twain seems to have thought for a long time that Huckleberry Finn, one of the world's great books, wasjust another boy's book. But behind the uproarious comedy is one of literature's great visions of what the world looks like in the light of man's dream of perfection, a dream that has haunted both American society and American literature.

: * CASTES: OLD AND NEW

by Dr. ANDRÉ BETEILLE
There is still a debate tn fndia as to whether caste is growing more or less important in social and political life. Andre Betetlle , Reader in Sociology at the University of Delhi, is French on his father's side. Brahmin Indian on his mother's. He believes that the debate about the influence of the traditional caste system is diverting attention from new kinds of social inequality which are growing to be an important feature of Indian society.

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.
