: 'DE BASIL AND THE FUTURE OF RUSSIAN BALLET '

by Arnold Haskell
In this talk Mr. Haskell reviews the present season at Covent Garden, bearing in mind such factors as the work of De Basil before the war, and the extent to which outside influences. particularly Americanisation, have affected the Russian tradition.
Mr. Haskell holds the opinion that this present season will largely decide the future of Russian ballet, and that its survival depends on a long residence in Europe in contact with the musicians and painters of France

: 'IS THERE A "WESTERN TRADITION"?'

Talk by Geoffrey Barraclough , Professor of Medieval History in the University of Liverpool
In Professor Barraclough's opinion the assumption of the essential continuity of Western European culture from Classical Greece and Rome through the medium of medieval Christendom has become an unresolved dogma in present-day thinking and even in present-day politics.
Tonight he criticises the historical foundations for this assumption and gives his reasons for doubting whether the concept of a Western tradition is a valid one. He uses the evidence of the medieval history of the countries of Western Europe and also of the Byzantine Empire and of Russia.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
