: NEW IDEAS IN SECONDARY EDUCATION

A series of eight programmes
Introduced by DR. F. HILLIARD
6: English Teaching
The teaching of English is central to the whole business of Secondary Education. In probably no other subject have teachers been so eager to experiment. and so self-critical of their aims and methods. Yet good teachers of English are so individualistic in their teaching that it is very hard to distinguish what they have in common.
FRED FLOWER, author of the recent book Language and Education. introduces ' a number of English teachers usint,' a wide range of different teaching methods, and finds evidence of similar basic principles and attitudes in their work

: LAUT UND LUISE

Sound poems by Ernst Jandl orchestrated and spoken by the author himself in a production with the BBC Radiophonic Workshop
Ernst Jandl is one of the leaders of the international sound and concrete poetry movement. His success at the Royal Albert Hall on June 11, 1965, when his reading was enthusiastically received by an audience of six thousand. demonstrated his work's power on a large scale. Tonight its intellectual subtlety and musical ingenuity as well as its vigour and humour are emphasised by the use of radiophonic techniques, including speeding up and slowing down of tapes, multiple recording, echo and feedback.
Introduced by GEORGE MACBETH

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.
