The last of six programmes Jack Kerouac : Writer
He was suddenly aware of the sound of language and got swimming in the seas of sound.
(ALAN GINSBERG , poet)
He was the precursor of the revolution of the 1980s.
Strangely, that revolution has retreated, but 'On the Road' keeps on being read.
(MALCOLM COWLEY, critic)
He has been called the patron saint of the American Beat
Generation. His life and writing were, to that generation, a symbol of rejection of Eisenhower's America. Kerouac went from college football hero to self-destructive alcoholic: 'a man on the run' his friend
Lucien Carr called him. But, in that retreat, he made at least one novel that challenged, and continues to challenge, the way in which we see the world. Presented by Hugh Sykes Researcher MIKE WOOLF

No More than Human (10)
Why Didn't They Warn Williams? by ANGELA SEWELL based on a true story of the First World War
The effect of total isolation on the human mind can be devastating. The awareness of such a possibility will advance slowly on a young mind.

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.
