: NEW IDEAS IN SECONDARY EDUCATION

A'series of eight programmes
1 Introduced by DR. F. HILLIARD
6: English Teaching n 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.

: THE CELTS

» A series of eight broadcasts
Introduced by DR. ANNE ROSS
6: The early Christian Celtic world
The vernacular traditions of the British Isles owe their earliest written form to the Church. The ' Golden Age ' of the Church, in which all the arts flourished, was brought to an end by the Vikings. The Picts. who occupied most of Scotland, were a powerful people with a unique style of art. In the fifth century the Scots, who came from Ireland, founded the kingdom of Dalriada in western Scotland. and by the middle of the ninth r century had taken control of the whole country.

: THE ORCHESTRA

Fourteen illustrated talks by ROGER FISKE
12: The Reaction against German Domination
The cult of the colossal went on to find its culmination in the works of Wagner. Mahler, and Strauss, but French composers, particularly after the Franco-Prussian war of 1870. turned elsewhere for ideas, to the other arts-Impressionist painting and Symbolist poetry, and to other pJaces-Spain and the Orient. Some nations derived inspiration from their own folksong. All these reactions were reflected, in fresh attitudes to the orchestra and new difficulties for the players.
Produced by Peter Dodd
First broadcast December 21. 1966

: ROYAL INSTITUTE OF PHILOSOPHY

Three lectures recorded from a recent series
3: Ethics and Language by G. J. WARNOCK
Lecturer in Philosophy University of Oxford
What is uniquely characteristic of moral discourse? Philosophers during the last hundred years have put forward various answers. But all these have, in effect, confused moral philosophy with the philosophy of language; and so they have taken the problem on an extended circular tour. Today, sadder and perhaps a little wiser, we are back with J. S. Mill 's question ' concerning the foundation of morality.'

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.
