A series of eight broadcasts introduced by Dr. Anne Ross

In Wales the old Celtic order virtually ended in the sixteenth century, in Ireland In the seventeenth and in Scotland In the eighteenth. The Celtic literary tradition then took on a more popular form, and today in Wales, Ireland, and Brittany, and to a lesser extent in Scotland, a modern written literature has grown up and flourishes. Meanwhile Intensive collecting of folklore and custom has enabled much to be preserved that would otherwise have been lost.

A radio opera by Humphrey Searle
Libretto adapted by the composer from the story and the play The Killer by EUGENE IONESCO
The original story of The Photo of the Colonel marked the first appearance of Ionesco's hero Berenger, the simple man facing a relentless and incomprehensible world. In this allegory of inevitable death Berenger encounters the Killer who has terrorised the inhabitants of a delectable suburb. The action provides full scope for Humphrey Searle 's power to create * dramma per musica.'

by GRAHAM HOUGH
Fellow of Darwin College, Cambridge, and University Lecturer in English
Frank Kermode 's The Sense of an Ending is an attempt 'to relate the theory of literary fiction to a more general theory of fiction, using fictions of the apocalypse as a model.' Principally it is concerned with the way in which different concepts of time. changing notions of the beginning and ending of life, have influenced the developments of literary form. Dr. Hough regards the book as a work of great subtlety and considerable importance hut raises some questions about Professor Kermode's premises, as well as his style and approach to the subject
