: Translating Eugene Onegin

Alexander Pushkin's biographer, Henri Troyat, wrote: 'Translation of Pushkin is treason'. But a number of people have tried, notably Vladimir Nabokov, who produced an unrhymed English version of the Russian writer's poetic novel.
Then, a few months ago, a new, privately printed translation appeared, written in the same iambic tetrameters as Pushkin's original and it was enthusiastically acclaimed by virtually all its reviewers.
It was by a retired diplomat, Sir Charles Johnston, and in this talk he discusses the difficulties of his task and the ways in which he tried to resolve them.
The illustrations from Pushkin's original are read by GEORGI VASSILT-CHIKOV

The Renaissance In Spain Twenty-seventh in a series of 28 programmes, devised and introduced by Basil Lam.
Sixteenth-century church music can far too easily be regarded as a succession of fine works by Flemish. Italian and English composers. Spain, whose distinctive Mozarabic chant is still sung In Toledo Cathedral, produced some of the greatest music of the period, notably by such acknowledged composers as Morales, Guerrero and Victoria.

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.
