Talk by Lady Violet Bonham Carter
Some of the finest spirits of the late Victorian and early Edwardian days were to be found among the group of friends who were nicknamed ' The Souls.' Most of them were distinguished men and women in public life-the group centred around Arthur Balfour. In this talk Lady Violet Bonham Carter , whose step-mother Lady Oxford was a member of ' The Souls,' recalls her memories of them as a circle of brilliant, gay friends. loyal in affection and unrivalled as conversationalists. She describes a society whose light was extinguished when the first World War brought an end to an era marked by intellectual and social brilliance

The main items are: a typical military site. a civil settlement, a villa, a road, and a collection of some smaller finds-from harnesses to hair-pins
The romantic excavator of the eighteenth century is compared with his scientific counterpart of today. There is a brief account of modern archaeological methods (including air photography) and of some of the work that has been done on bombed areas since the war

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
