: The Society of the Poem

Three talks by JONATHAN RABAN on some aspects of contemporary verse
1: The Poem Against Society
Mr Raban argues that since T. S. Eliot whom he sees not as the first great modern poet but as the last writer at the end of an era, the language of poetry has found itself 'hustled into the bazaar: it has become, at least in the eye of the public, one of many professionalised rhetorics.'

: Savonarola

JOHN hale, Professor of Italian at University College, London, talks about Savonarola and his relations with Renaissance Florence in the last days of the government of the Medici family and the revolution which overthrew them.
He talks about the continuing fascination of this visionary preacher and revolutionary politician, and looks at the most recent studies of Savonarola's religious and political career in Florence.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
