: * Reading Ezra Pound

Ezra Pound has been a major presence in modern literature but this does not mean that he has been widely read or easily understood.
Denis Donoghue , Professor of Modern English and American Literature at University College, Dublin, considers Michael Alexander 's recent book The Poetic Achievement of Ezra Pound and reflects on the reader's role in interpreting Pound's poetry.

Act 2

: * The Illusion of Beauty

'Beauty is truth, truth beauty ' to the poet, but a biologist is bound to see it as something closer to a lie. For what possible biological advantage can have been gained from aesthetic appreciation? What possible counterpart can exist in nature for, say, an abstract painting? Dr Nick Humphrey of King's College, Cam-bridge. argues that a love of beauty has given man a unique ability to order and classify the objects around him and so better understand the world.

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.
