: AN ART OF PICTURES

Four talks on the impact of painting on English poetry in the mid-nineteenth century 3: Tennyson and the Idylls of the King by D. J. PALMER
Mr. Palmer discusses Tennyson's concept of painting, and argues that it was more in tune with Turner than with Rossetti and the early Pre-Raphaelites. At the same time he suggests that Tennyson's own poetry foreshadowed the Symbolists and even the Surrealists in its preoccupation with visionary landscape.

: IDEAS HAVE A HISTORY

2: The ' Inner Life ' of Ideas by PETER BURKE
Lecturer in History and Director of Studies in the History of Ideas at the University of Sussex
The first talk of this pair examined ways in which the life history of ideas could be looked at. This second one considers some of the ways in which that life history can be explained. And it .xamines in particular an important question: If we explain ideas historically, aren'we exPlainingthem away? Aren'ideas either explicable only in philosophical terms-or valueless?

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.
