: David Gascoyne in Retrospect

Compiled and introduced by Douglas Cleverdon
With an Eligiac Improvisation on the Death of Paul Eluard and a passage from Journal 1937-1939 recorded by DAVID Gascoyne: and sequences from Night Thoughts, with ROBERT HARRIS as The Solitary, first broadcast in 1955. The poems read by Frank Duncan
David Gascoyne 's first book of poems appeared in 1932, when he was 16 years old. Before he was 20, he had written an autobiographical novel, another volume of poems, mainly surrealist, and A Short Sur vey of Surrealism. But since then, apart from translations, he has published only two books of poems and finally, in 1956, a major work for radio, Night Thoughts. These three volumes reveal his development through anguished sensibilHy and spiritual suffering into a visionary poetic achievement of extraordinary power. Producer john theocharis

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.
