by . W F. Jackson Knight and Tom Lockett
This programme describes the evidence available today for judging how Vergil and his contemporaries pronounced Latin. The script by W. F. Jackson Knight and Tom Lockett is read by Mr. Locket!, and, in conclusion, Jackson Knight reads a passage of the Aeneid—Book 4. lines 595 to 612-in what is thought to be the pronunciation of Vergil's day.
(The recorded broadcast of Sept. 21)
