Professor BERNARD ASHMOLE (Yatcs Professor of Archaeology in the University of London) : ' The Historical Sketch '
PROFESSOR ASHMOLE'S talks offer a P key to the appreciation of classical art and an incitement to return to the study of the original examples. He givesthisweek a rapid historical sketch of the main creative periods of the ancient world, whose cumulative achievement in the evolution of pleasing form and .design make up the classical and traditional.ideal. The illustration reproduced here shows a typical product of the Homeric Age (9th century B.C.) when early 'Hellenic'Greek forms were beginning to evolve" ffom those of the Minoan civilization of Crete : it portrays the mourning for the dead, and is taken from a funeral vase now in the Paris Louvre. Minoan art can be studied at first-hand in the First Vase Room and the Gold Ornament Room of the British Museum, and in the Ashmolean Museum at Oxford.

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.
