: PROUST AND MUSIC

by JOHN COCKING
Professor of French at King's College, London
Like a good many music lovers, Proust thought music was the most faithful way of expressing feelings; like a good many nineteenth-century philosophers and writers he thought it takes us through our feelings into another world of the mind. He meant his own novel to move us like music; how far did his love of music help him to write it?
John Cocking has some suggestions to make about the part played by Proust's musical culture in the planning of the novel. His talk is illustrated by musical excerpts. Second broadcast

: * THE VIKINGS IN NORTH AMERICA

Second of two talks by GORDON R. LOWTHER
The current exhibition of the Vinland Map at the British Museum reawakened interest in the Viking discovery of North America-a subject liable to raise academic and nationalistic passions. Professor Lowther, who has worked extensively in the American Arctic, sifts fact from fancy on this romantic fringe of prehistory.

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.
