Talk by Professor Gordon N. Ray , of the University of Illinois
' It is the unwritten part of books that would be the most interesting,' Thackeray once wrote. The unwritten part of his own novels, ' Esmond 'and' Pendennis,' is the story of how his own life is reflected in their pages. Professor Ray presents this story with evidence drawn from unpublished documents.
Professor Ray, whose edition of the letters and private papers of Thackeray substantially increased our knowledge of the novelist, has been researching in this country in preparation for a biography of Thackeray.

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.
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.
