: New Ideas in Secondary Education: 7: Notes on Classroom Drama

Eight programmes for teachers and parents on the changing scene in secondary schools
Introduced by Dr. F. Hilliard
'Men say that the young of all creatures cannot be quiet in their bodies or in their voices, they are always wanting to move and cry out: some leaping and shipping, others uttering all sorts of cries... Shall we begin then with the acknowledgment that education is first given through Apollo and the Muses?'
These observations were made by Plato some 2,300 years ago. Nowhere would they receive greater support than among the present teachers of creative drama in schools.

: THE CELTS

A series of eight broadcasts
Introduced by DR. ANNE Ross
7: The Literatures of the Celtic World
The oral tradition was deliberately fostered in the Celtic societies. When this ancient tradition was finally committed to writing under the patronage of the Church, a whole way of life was preserved. The vernacular literatures of the British Isles are the oldest in Furope, apart from the Greek and Roman writings. They contain heroic legends, mythological traditions. stories of saints and accounts of the voyages and adventures of pagans and Christians alike. Poetic expression in the form of sung or performed verse played a leading role in early Celtic societies, and bards were often attached to noble houses to eulogise the chieftains and their families.

The Retreat to Commitment is the title of a book by the American philosopher, W. W. Bartley , published a few years ago.

: The Switch Doctor

A radio collage based on material written and assembled by Daevid Allen
In this free-flowing treatment of poems, conversation, snatches of music and electronic sounds, Mr. Allen has constructed a radiophonic work in the borderland between literature and music. It takes its place alongside other recent experimental programmes, including Crook and Souster's Seasons through the Day of a Town by the Sea and Rosemary Tonk's Sono-Montage, but ultimately it should perhaps be listened to more in the spirit of a piece of music, such as John Cage's Fontana Mix.
Introduced by George Macbeth followed by an interlude at 10.55

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.
