: Paintings in Close-up

Canaletto at Warwick Castle
The second of six talks by different speakers on important paintings in British collections. In about 1749, in the course of his ten-year stay in England, Canaletto painted several views of Warwick Castle. Two of the finest of them - and amongst the finest paintings he ever did, in England or in Venice - have always hung at the Castle until they were sold very recently. Now their future is in the balance. Two museums are attempting to save them from export - Birmingham, and the Ashmolean at Oxford. David Piper, himself the Director of the Ashmolean, relates one of the two paintings to the structure of Warwick Castle as it is today.

Anthony Kenny becomes Master of Balliol College. Oxford. next autumn: a somewhat different elevation to that he expected while training for the priesthood. Nowadays he is a professional philosopher. Music has always accompanied his career, from mounting a production of Cox and Box in the improbable setting of the English College in Rome. to marrying a member of the Vassar Madrigal Singers. This afternoon he introduces a personal choice of records.

or Let's All Agree to Say Marjarine In 1926 the British Broadcasting Company (as it then was) decided to set up an Advisory Committee on Spoken English. For 13 years its distinguished members deliberated on problems of pronunciation. Their recommendations were primarily to give guidance to announcers, but they were also published and widely reported.
Drawing on the BBC's written archives Paul Ferris charts the progress of the most concerted effort in the history of the language to regulate the way we speak it. with and MICHAEL TUDOR BARNES

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.
