Denis Donoghue, the Henry James Professor of Letters at New York University, gives the fourth of six lectures on the place of the arts in modern society.
A Cherishing Bureaucracy
'Modern societies have a surprising interest in assimilating the arts: you would have thought that the arts could safely be allowed to go their own way. The question is: do modern societies domesticate the arts because they can't bear not to comprehend them or because they are determined to keep everything under control.'

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
