: * DRAMA VERSUS THE THEATRE

f An argument in two parts by TERENCE HAWKES
1: Stamp Out Live Theatre
Mr. Hawkes condemns what he sees as the vested interest of the intellectual community in preserving the theatre in a state of perpetually dying. He recommends that it should be allowed to die in peace and make room for ' another kind of theatre which would inevitably take its place.'

: * DRAMA VERSUS THE THEATRE

tAn argument in two parts by TERENCE HAWKES
2: Drama in Camera
Mr. Hawkes argues that the real drama currently available to our society is in the panoramic, cross-class art of television. He suggests that an event such as the 1966 World Cup coverage ' provided millions of people of all kinds and levels of intelligence with their first really memorable experiences 'hat could be called theatrical.'

: TWO SIXTEENTH-CENTURY HISTORIANS

2: Camden by HUGH TREVOR-ROPER
Regius Professor of Modern History in the University of Oxford
Headmaster of Westminster, Clarenceux King of Arms, William Camden was the most famous English scholar of his day. His Annals of Queen Elizabeth was written as a result of many different pressures, some of these vciy unfavourable to scholarly detachment. But it is a great work of history. It is independent of all the pressures which created it. It made no concessions to anyone. Camden saw the glories of the Elizabethan age not merely in politics but in the total activity of English 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.
