A series of eight broadcasts introduced by DR. ANNE Ross

In Wales the old Celtic order virtually ended in the sixteenth century, in Ireland In the seventeenth and in Scotland In the eighteenth. The Celtic literary tradition then took on a more popu- ! lar form. and today in Wales, Ireland. and Brittany, and to a lesser extent in Scotland, a modern written literature has grown up and flourishes. Meanwhile Intensive collecting of folklore and custom has enabled much to be preserved that would otherwise have been lost.

: THE PHOTO OF THE COLONEL

A radio opera by Humphrey Searle
Libretto adapted by the composer from the story and the play The Killer by EUGENE IONESCO
The original story of The Photo of the Colonel marked the first appearance of Ionesco's hero Berenger, the simple man facing a relentless and incomprehensible world. In this allegory of inevitable death Berenger encounters the Killer who has terrorised the inhabitants of a delectable suburb. The action provides full scope for Humphrey Searle 's power to create * dramma per musica.'

: FICTIONS OF THE END

by GRAHAM HOUGH
Fellow of Darwin College, Cambridge, and University Lecturer in English
Frank Kermode 's The Sense of an Ending is an attempt 'to relate the theory of literary fiction to a more general theory of fiction, using fictions of the apocalypse as a model.' Principally it is concerned with the way in which different concepts of time. changing notions of the beginning and ending of life, have influenced the developments of literary form. Dr. Hough regards the book as a work of great subtlety and considerable importance hut raises some questions about Professor Kermode's premises, as well as his style and approach to the subject

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.
