: * LEICESTER

by RAY GOSLING
' Leicester is a red cheese. firm and full. Leicester is green field and my lord and the Belvoir Hunt.'
An old city-the Romans were in Leicester. Nowadays almost every machine we use, certainly at least one article of clothing we wear, contain parts made in Leicester. Its market serves some half a million people who live in one of the largest and least known of English urban areas.

: TWO FAILED POETS

A comparative study of Browning's Pippo Passes and Pound's Hugh Selwyn Mauberley by JONATHAN RABAN
' In a society which has fallen from the state of culture-In the sense in which Matthew Arnold used that word-what sort of poetry can there be but the lyrically archaic or the deliberately discontinuous and fragmented. Both Browning and Pound present the first of those two alternatives through the personae of Pippa and Mauberley, but the simple lyric is there to be rejected as unworkable. Browning and Pound need a language as pluralist and as disjunctive as the culture from which it issues.'
Pippa Passes: Monday at 8.30 p.m. (Radio 4)

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.
