: THE CELTS

A series of eight broadcasts
Introduced by DR. ANNE Ross
5: Celts and Romans
The Romans conquered Gaul in 58 B.C. and began the conquest of Britain in A.D 43. In North Britain the military aspect of the occupation was dominant, while much of Scotland was never occupied and Ireland was not attempted. In southern Fngland the already urban-minded Belgic tribes soon accepted Roman ways and all the cultural changes these implied. The protection of Rome was withdrawn in A.D. 410. and the Christian Church became the main spiritual and cultural influence. The Celtic Church reached its peak in the sixth century, which is known as the ' Age of the Saints '

: * THE AMERICANISA-TION OF BRITISH INTELLECTUAL LIFE

by PROFESSOR MAX BELOFF
Although previous fears that the Americans would ' take over' British popular culture have proved unjustified, Professor Beloff believes that American methods and attitudes are coming to dominate (ur intellectual life. This is particularly true in the Humanities and the Social Sciences, where the younser academics are obsessed with the glamour of American ways, and seduced by the possibilities of American money.

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.
