7.0 The Golden Age of Spain 2: Poetry and its Voices of Protest
The Golden Age of Spain produced an astonishing clutch of great poets. A reader of the poetry of the time often gains the impression that 17th-century Spanish poets spent their energy celebrating the Catholic oligarchy and its policies. PROFESSOR L. J. WOODWARD Of the University of St Andrews re-examines this emphasis. Spanish readings by MIGUEL PENARANDA

: Scientifically Speaking

For many years, written on the blackboard of the eminent American physicist Richard Feynman was his ' most fundamental question ' - ' why does the muon weigh? ', the question still stands unsolved and it is further complicated by the discovery of a plethora of what seem to be other fundamental particles of nature. A few years ago. three types of quarks seemed sufficient to account for the known behaviour of nuclear matter - now the quarks have proliferated and there may be as many as 18. So what is ' fundamental ' and how can physicists continue to probe matter in a search for finer and finer structures?
John Maddox discusses with Professors Sheldon Glashow and Richard Wilson of Harvard University the intellectual issues that confront both theoretical and experimental physicists today.

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.
